Hades was the god of the underworld and the name eventually came to also describe the home of the dead as well. He was the oldest male child of Cronus and Rhea.
Hades and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated their father and the Titans to end their reign, claiming rulership over the cosmos. They agreed to split their rule with Zeus becoming god of the skies, Poseidon god of the sea and Hades god of the underworld.
He was later known to the Greeks as Plouton, which the Romans pluralized to Pluto. The god of the underworld was married to Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, whom he obtained through deception after abducting her to the underworld and giving her the forbidden fruit pomegranate, forcing her to remain in the underworld with him for one third of each year.
In life, the same as in mythology, some people can descend and return, some can accompany and guide other souls, and some come to know Hade’s realm very well, because they reside there. Psychology’s original meaning came from the Greek word psyche or soul, and Thanatology, from Thanatos, the Greek god of death. Both of these fields are Hade’s domain. It is important to accept Hade’s place as a place of rest.
