It seems like there's something important you might have missed, which is understandable, considering this information was lost to history for millennia. Before what we think of as ancient Greece, before their contact with Phoenicia, was the period when most Greek myths take place - a late bronze-age/early iron-age civilization known as Mycenaea. The surviving texts from Mycenaea have only been deciphered in the last couple decades, so again, this information _was_ lost to history. There are Mycenaean attestations of Persephone as a goddess and of a world of the dead, but not of Hades as a god, which implies that Persephone was goddess of the dead, and the myth about Hades kidnapping her was basically retconning Hades into existence. That's also consistent with a lot of... let's say less than flattering? changes in gender politics between Mycenaean Greece and Hellenic Greece.

Historians are having a hard time with Egypt cause they can't explain so much factual evidence to coincide with all their fiction. You should do a video on how they portray The ancient Egyptians as caucasians on the hot plains of Africa despite the evidence carved in stone, or how every major advanced civilization traveled and was taught by the Egyptians, or better yet how egypt was conquered by the Greeks and arabs both of today's leading super powers, what did they take to advance themselves above every other nation, why did they burn all the libraries after their siege, why they insist on enslaving and diminishing the image of black ppl and why they pay homage to Egyptians on our dollar bill, the Obelisk in Washington, being the phallus of Asar representing resurrection Asar know as osiris to the Greeks and why they gave the name of our goddess aset (isis) to a terrorist organization. I challenge you on finding and presenting some messed up origins on real events, great researcher/ storyteller. That aside Im an admire of your work. I look forward to seeing what you can do with work that has facts behind it. Not just figments of one's imagination. Here's a starting point, why does the sphinx have the head of a man and body of a lion.. why is it facing the direction that it faces. peace.

Hades_Yo bro, I want this chick who is like your sisters daughter. And has control over all living things that provide all our sacrifices. So like, will you let me kidnap her and make her my bride. Zues_Sure bro, what could go wrong. I did make a promise and fuck that chick. She has no leverage over either one of us (But actually does) 2 weeks later (Sponge bob voice) Zues_Ok hades, don't be mad, but I'm gonna have to ask yha to turn over my daughter and give her back to her mother. Hades_Wait, no, what why?! Zues_The cunts gone on a rampage and now we don't have no sacrifices from the humans because she's neglecting the earth. Hades_No! Humans_Just give her what she wants, for god sakes were starving down here. 2 weeks later (spongebob voice) Hades_Ok, I see your point. But before she goes. Here eat this pomegranate.(Laughs hysterically like a evil villain) Persephone_But I love him! I never wanna leave his side again! (Clings to her lover as mother is ordering the return over her daughter) Mother_ffffiiinnneeee. You can stay with hades 1/3 of the month, but the rest of the year. You have to come spend it with me. Hades_Deal. *grumbles*

Actualy she wasnt kindapped by Hades, she herself wandered to Cave and discovered Secret passage to undervorld. She liked down there So she decided to stay on her own, and Hades Just went along whit it. And Yes, Demeter though that someone kindapped her doughter, and she was mad as Hell, So when Demeter forbidded earth from Bloom, Zeus called Persephone to come back to Mother and stop the chaos, but she disobeyed the order, and every other order to left undervorld. Zeus got angry and changed originnal name of Persephone - Kore, which means,, Little Child,, to Persephone ,, the destroyer,, or,, the chaos bringer,,.

So people know, The "Rape" of Persephone wasn't what we think of "rape", now. The myth is also a moral for fathers not to sell off their daughters to narriage without their or their mothers' permission. Mothers didn't get a say so that's why Hades didn't ask permission from Demeter. In Ancient Greek marriages, father's would basically sell/give away their duaghters (like today's walking down the aisle) & the new husband would then give the bride a pomegranate (or sometimes an apple) to symbolise she will now be provided from by the husband, not father. That is why Persephone had the pomegranate. Minthe was a previous lover. Hades didn't cheat.

The reason Adonis chose Aphrodite was because she wore her magic belt which was against the agreement she and Persephone had since it made everyone fall in love with Aphrodite which is why he picked her and it wasn’t a wild boar it was Ares because he was jealous

There is actually 2 versions of her origin story and in the other one her name is Kora, which meant little girl, and she when to the underworld on her own, because Hades left a portal open and she didn't want to leave. She's more scary than Hades and her name was changed because little girl didn't fit her anymore.
