    • Hades didn't mean to rape persephone. Aphrodite was petty and mind controlled hades into kidnapping her and he felt so bad about it he spent the rest of eternity trying to make it up to her

    • The thing is, in the original myths Persephone actually wanted to be with Hades, but her mom wouldn't let her. To remedy that, Hades "kidnapped" her and they lived happily ever after. Hades was pretty much the best god in original greek myths, but Christians came along and compared him to Satan.

    • Fun fact in the original Greek myth hades isnt portrayed as kidnapping persephone and more of rescuing her from her overbearing and overprotective mother.

    • Hades is one of the best fucking Disney villains btw and Greek mythology is beyond lit.

    • The story is called "the rape of Persephone" but rape had a different meaning in Greece at the time. It meant more like a ceremonial consumation of your relationship, so they were pretty good. She didn't like him at first, but it worked out

    • Yall are all saying that hades today persephone, when thats not true. He had a crush on her, and zues gave him bad advice and told him to kidnap her. He did literally anything anyone couldve asked, but persophone kept rejecting him. (Continued in replies to me)

    • For those saying Hades kidnapped Persephone, the myth gets told different ways. Some people say Hades seduced her, some say he kidnapped her. Some say she ate the pomegranate seeds on purpose, some say she didn't.

    • Poseidon has a wife. She was a minor sea goddess named Amphitrite.

    • When the person who was kidnapped and the dark lord of the underworld has a better relationship than any other god or goddess

    • persephone is actually incredibly jealous and protective of hades after they get married. In one myth hades was trying to do as his brothers Poseidon and Zeus very frequently and get a side chick and persephone pulverized her when she found out and that's how we got mint leaves.

    • Yes, he did kidnap her, but rape was never implied. Plus, in ancient greece, kidnapping your love interest was seen as romantic. So if translated in modern day terms, it's the equivalent of running away with your lover.

    • Not all forms of the legend involve hades kidnapping her

    • I’m pretty sure the Hades-Persephone story is meant to explain why we have seasons

    • It’s so blatantly obvious that the full extent of your knowledge on mythology comes from Percy Jackson
      6 7
    • There are two main versions of this myth, either Hades pretty much rapes and tricks Persephone (which is the one many people know as you can see) or the really less known one where she is happy with Hades...though the out come is still the same

    • No in all Greek mythologies he just kidnaps her, he doesn’t rape her or anything but does force her to stay in the underworld and wins her over. However she does eventually go back to visit her mom and since she’s the god of harvest or something and does on the condition she come back to hades

    • Just want to point out that almost all of the Greek gods are related in some way. For instance I'm pretty sure that Persephone is actually Hades niece
      5 1
    • Poseidon today Medusa in a temple and that’s why she was turned into the snake monster that turns men to stone

    • Ok, obviously, no one knows the actual fucking myth, hades kidnapped persephone, she did not fall in love with him at all, in fact, she hates him
      6
    • Funny enough hades is probably one of the few Greek gods that didn’t screw over humans daily
      5
    • Most Greek mythology consists of incest and bestiality as well as cannibalism. Kronos; The mad titan; consumed all of Zeus’ siblings. Zeus’ mother hid him as an infant and gave Kronos a rock instead to consume. Zeus’ mother was also the sister of Kronos

    • Ok so Hades saw Persephone among the gods alone, he instantly fell in love with her, so he brought her to his kingdom, where at first she hated him for taking her away from home, but then she soon realized that, she liked seeing the strange creatures, and she too was in love with him.

    • Technically, he did state a rule when she was down there, dont eat anything, and common lore about foods in the underworld is you die if u eat them while living, and as persephone was a god it complicated things and hades felt bad so he got to know her and then they got married but never had kids
      4 2
    • Anyone else read hades I’m the Disney voice

    • Tumblr literally thinks every unhealthy relationship is a healthy one and any healthy relationship where they have communication and talk shit out is super fucking bad and abusive.

    • When we hear about the Rape of Persephone we think of sexual violation but rape means kidnapping in this instance. Think of reap

    • Just because they had the most stable relationship out of the gods doesnt excuse the fact that it was started because Persephone was kidnapped and taken against her will

    • Zeus cheated on Hera constantly and had many kids (including incest). Then he THINKS Hera cheated on him once to birth Ares, so Zeus hates Ares with a passion. What a bitch

    • Lore Olympus?

    • Okay, so here’s the thing people. With stories as old as this, there tends to be mass variation in the details. Greek Mythology isn’t the only well recorded instance of this either, it’s a very prevalent thing in Arthurian stories as well. There are versions where shit gets weird/bad

    • Hades is also Persephone's Uncle, who today her and forced her to marry him. I'm not sure why people think it's such a romantic love story

    • Hera wouldn't visit Persephone and Persephone couldn't leave Hades and ended up hating it though
      3 3
    • Common misconception about Hades and Persephone: "rape" used to mean "to capture" (kinda like how "gay" meant "happy"). Once Persephone got to the underworld, she basically too lk it as a "it's kinda cool down here also, NO CONTROLLING MOM!" cause Demeter was a bitch
