Zeus and Persephone

Persephone, the goddess of spring, before she became queen of underworld (before her abduction to Hades). Most of the gods wanted to make her their bride. Hermes offered his rod as gift, Apollo produced his melodious harp as a marriage gift. Ares brought spear and cuirass for the wedding and shield as bride gift. Hephaestus bring necklace of many colours as a gift. Even Persephone beauty could not escaped the allseeing eyes of Zeus

             Demeter, mother of Persephone, reject all gifts sent to Persephone. Demeter worried about her daughter, so she went to the house of Astraios, the god of prophecy or more specifically astrology.   Astraios told Demeter to guard her daughter against a robber-bridegroom and before marriage a false and secret bedfellow will come unforeseen, a half monster and cunning mind. 


Demeter hid her gorgeous young daughter, in a cave deep under ground and two dragons were placed to gard the cave.Zeus was bewitched by Persephone beauty and somehow found out the cave where Demeter had hid her. Zeus transformed himself into a dragon, lulled the two dragons into sleep, who were guarding the cave, and managed to get inside the cave. Where he seduce, his own daughter, Persephone virgin body in form of dragon. With their union, Zagreus was born. 


Later when Persephone became queen of underworld, she was again seduce by Zeus but this time disguised as her husband, Hades. Melinoe  was said to be born from this union.

  4. Zagreus was again concieved of the union of Persephone and Zeus in Hades' disguise, says the Orphic myths. This Zagreus later become Dionysus. However, earlier myths say that the boy's father was actually Hades. Zagreus was also used as an epithet of Hades in early mythology and the gods feared hades even zues also hades has an immortal army they die when trying to kill the gods above that helpped zues big whoop they are already dead the monster and the heros are also loyal to hades thhey here what zues did they would torture him for this act so it most likely never happened the early story states hades impregnated his wife and it came 1st and was widly excepted this later story ant true the earlier one is
