NewAglaia

AGLAEA (Ἀγλαΐα) is the goddess of glory, splendor, beauty, magnificence, and adornment. She and her sisters attended Aphrodite, and Aglaea sometimes acted as messenger for the goddess of love.

She was the youngest of the three Charites.

The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory. That's the essence of it.

More Information

History and Myths

The youngest of the Charites, Aglaea or Aglaia (Ἀγλαΐα) was one of three daughters of Zeus and either the Oceanid Eurynome or Eunomia, goddess of good order and lawful conduct. Her two sisters were Euphrosyne, and Thalia. Together they were known as the Three Graces, or the Charites. Aglaea was also known as Kharis ("the Grace") and Kale ("Beauty").

Aglaea was married to Hephaestus after his divorce from Aphrodite, and by him became mother of Eucleia (“Good Repute”), Eupheme (“Acclaim”), Euthenia (“Prosperity”), and Philophrosyne (“Welcome”).
