I am Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, and fertility. The Greeks called me Aphrodite, but I served the same purpose in their culture. It has been said that I descended from Uranus, but others say that my parents were Zeus and Dione. My son, Aeneas, fled Troy during the Trojan war. His descendants founded the city of Rome. Many temples have been erected in my honor, demonstrating the reverence towards me of the ancient peoples.

  1. This is a nice, brief but very informative bio. It tells me about where Venus is descended from and also how you are remembered and honored. What does the name Venus actually mean? Your wording is very clear and I can tell that you wrote this in your own words using information from your research.
