Aphrodite is the goddesses of love and beauty. Some people think that Zeus was her father and Dione her mother. Other people think she had no mother of father. Instead, she came from a foam sea and appeared on Mount Olympus. When Zeus met her he adopted her and gave her a husband Hephaestus, Aphrodite had a magic belt that made everything fall in love with her; even wild animals were tamed around her.
