Darling of Olympus was Kidnapped
King of Underworld takes Persephone to be his bride.
The Real Story.
I interviewed Demeter on her opinions on the kidnapping.(see video below) Meanwhile Zeus stepped in to prevent the extinction of all living things. He made Hades hand over Persephone to her mother. In the midst of Hermes trying to carry Persephone away Hades gave her four pomegranate seed for a "snack". Seems pretty harmless right? Wrong!!! Those pomegranate seeds were the food of the dead. So long story short Persephone has to stay with Hades in the underworld for four months out of every year, while the earth suffers with Demeter in cold winter. Although when Persphone returns the earth flourishes with life.
