Who is Aphrodite? Who is her family?
Hey guys! How are you? Are you excited to learn more about aphrodite? Well, I am. I got lots of this info from some great sites. Make sure to check out the "SITES" page on my blog. Aphrodite had a big family, she had about 20 kids, she was married to Hephestus because when she was born, Zues was scared that all of the gods and godess'es would fight over her so they could get married, so Zeus made her marry Hephestus Aphrodite constantly cheated with other men. She loved Ares, but only for his good looks, she had most of her children with Ares. If you look at the family tree below, she had the children of Erichthonious, Phobos, Deimos, Aresia, Eros, Pothos, Himeros, Antres, Hominia, Hedylogos, Rhode, Relis, Shannon, Euphrosyne, Phripus, Algea, Peitho, Euromia, and Hermaphroditos. You all can look at the family tree for more info about her children. Dionysus did have a very short affair and a few children with Aphrodite,but was mad at Ares for Aphrodite liking him more, so legend has it that Dionysus cursed her babies to be deformed and/or with disabilities. Surprisingly this didn't affect Aphrodite. Aphrodite and Ares had the most well know child in the greek myths and legends. Even though Aphrodite was cursed to have ugly babies, she still had Eros, now the god of love. He has arrows that he shoots and they make people fall in live with eachother. Now in current day he is known as "Cupid". The first love of Aphrodite was a young handsome sea-god. That totally makes sense because some say they were both born in the sea and some sort of connections, and some say that they were related and bonded over that. His name was Nerities. Nerities then broke up with aphrodite and then she turned him into a shell fish because he betryled her. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to reply and check out other posts, and check out more stuff on my own website!
