Hades is the god of the Underworld, and he is the son of Kronos, the god of time, and Rhea, the mother goddess. He is the god that presides over wealth and fortunes of the earth.

Hades was actually devoured by Kronos, his father, when he was born along with his four brothers and sisters. Zeus caused the Titans to disgorge them and then they drove the titans from the heaven away. When the 3 brothers came back victoriously they divide the cosmic world among them. Hades received the third part, which was the dark Underworld.

Hades was madly in love with Persephone and Zeus promised her to Hades. But he forgot to mention about it to Persephone and her father Demeter. Later when the time came Hades asked for his hand and the goddess completely resisted him. When Demeter came to know about it she was furious. However, Hades kidnapped Persephone and Demeter was angered by this and caused a great doom fall on earth. She insisted that her daughter be returned to her. Hades put a condition that if Persephone had not eaten anything from the Underworld then she would be returned. However, Persephone had consumed some pomegranate seeds and then she had broken the pact. So she had to spend one third of the year serving Zeus, with Demeter and with Hades respectively.
