According to Greek mythology, Hades was the king of the Underworld and god of death and the dead. He was also the god of the hidden wealth of earth. For example, fertile soil with nourished the seed-grain, mined wealth of gold, silver, and other metals. He was a child of Cronus (Kronos) and Rhea, and was a sibling of Poseidon, Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Zeus, and Chiron. Hades was eaten by his own father, Cronus, as soon as he was born with four of his siblings. Zeus later caused Cronus to vomited them, and together they drove the Titan gods from heaven and locked them away in the pit of Tartaros. Hades wanted a bride so he asked his brother, Zeus, to give him one of his daughters. Zeus then offered him Persephone, the daughter of Demeter. Hades knew that Persephone will not accept the marriage so he abducted her. Knowing this, Demeter caused disasters on earth until the day Persephone returns. Persephone was eventually fetched forth from the underworld but she tasted the pomegranate seed. Because of the seed, she was forced to see Hades for a portion of each year.
