Kronos revolted against his father Uranus. He severed his father's genitals, and threw them into the sea, where they mingled with the foam and gave birth to Aphrodite. Aphrodite was born from this highly unusual union. She inspired romantic love and physical attraction in equal measure. Aphrodite was a magnificent goddess. Zeus married her to Hephaestus, the lame god. But Aphrodite soon chose a lover - the god of war, Ares. Nobody could resist the goddess Aphrodite, who was the object of much jealousy on Olympus. One day, Eris, the goddess of discord, threw an apple between Athena, Aphrodite and Hera. On it was written "To the most beautiful." The task of choosing between the three goddesses was entrusted to a young shepherd, Paris. His decision led to a war that lasted for ten years: the infamous Trojan War.
