Demeter was goddess of agriculture, sister of Zeus and mother of Persephone.
When Persephone was abducted to the Underworld by its ruler Hades, Demeter was heartbroken. She wandered the length and breadth of the earth in search of her daughter, during which time the crops withered and it became perpetual winter.
The imperious king of the gods Zeus had dared to give Demeter\'s daughter Persephone away without asking! Imagine Demeter\'s outrage at this revelation. When Helios insinuated that Hades, the king of the Underworld, was a good match, it added insult to injury.
