Aphrodite loved and was loved by many. She had 10 different lovers, and over 19 children.
Aphrodite caused the Trojan war by bribing prince Paris, with the most beautiful woman in the world, just to win the most beautiful immortal goddess contest. It is said she was born 2 ways. one way is: Hesiod, the ancient author, wrote that Aphrodite was created from the violent acts of Cronus, who took a sickle and cut of the genitals of his father Uranus, and threw them into the sea. The sperm and sea mixed into a soft foam, and from this foam rose a beautiful maiden standing naked and dripping on a seashell. Wherever she stepped, flowers bloomed and beach sand turned to green grass.

She went to Mount Olympus, and Hera immediately decided that Aphrodite should marry. So Zeus gathered all the gods and asked that they make their suit, and that Aphrodite would choose her own husband. Now, Hephaestus had been promised by Hera to have Aphrodite as his bride if he came back to Olympus. So Hera told him exactly what to say when it was his turn to make his suit.

Now all the gods offered amazing gifts. Poseidon offered grottoes, riddles, and fine undersea treasures. He also pointed out that since she was born of the sea, that she belonged to him. Hermes offered to make her queen of the crossroads where all must come, so she would know every secret in the world. All the other gods made their suits in turn. Finally, it was Hephaestus turn. "I would make a good husband for a girl like you. I work late." Aphrodite chose Hephaestus. Aphrodite was judged most beautiful of three Olympian goddesses.
