In ancient Greek mythology and religion, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, sexuality, pleasure and childbearing. She was born when Saturn cut off his father's genus Uranus and threw them into the sea. From the foam came the Goddess, hence her name. Because of her beauty the other gods feared that competing with one another to win her favor would lead to war. Jupiter therefore arranged her marriage to Hephaestus, who, because of his ugliness and malformations, was not perceived as a threat.
