Transcript of Aphrodite : The Goddess of Love and Beauty

Mighty Aphrodite By : Thomas Bowden Background Information Aphrodite is the Goddess of Fertility, beauty, and love. She was married to Hephaestus, but loved
Ares. She had three children with Ares :
Harmonia, Eros, and Anteros. She had a total of six children with
four different Gods, none of which were Hephaestus.
This made her, in legend, the Goddess of Fertility. Her home was Mount Olympus with the other Greek
Gods and Goddesses. Special talents, skills, or traits Every man who laid eyes on her, fell in love with Aphrodite. Aphrodite had power over marriage, making people fall in love. Aphrodite could make anything beautiful. Aphrodite was beautiful, irresistible, and sensual. She was the overall image of female power over men. Weaknesses of Aphrodite Vain Bad Temper Jealous Unfaithful Myth Cronos cut off the genitals of his father, Oranos. They fell into the sea and released a foam-like substance. Aphrodite rose from the foam, wearing only "...the bright tunic of her hair, which fell to mid-thigh and was yellow as daffodils." Zeus brought Aphrodite to Mount Olympus,
gathered the gods, and said "Aphrodite is to be married!" The gods, except Hephaestus, shouted their promises and gifts
they could give her. Hera reached in the crowd of gods,
grabbed Hephaestus, and told him to say
what she had told him to say earlier. Hephaestus said
"I would make a good husband for a girl like you. I work late." Aphrodite said nothing, leaned down,
and kissed Hephaestus.
They were married that night. Two Questions How many children
