The Queen of the Earth is a blend of both Demeter and her daughter Persephone as well as Eresh Kigal. Demeter was the Greek Goddess of Grain and of the Bounty of the Earth. She was one of the Mother Goddesses. Persephone was the maiden daughter of Demeter who was taken by Hades, the brother of Zeus and King of the Underworld, down into his kingdom where she became his "Queen." Eresh Kigal was of Sumerian origin. She was the Goddess of the Underworld but was originally a "grain" goddess. The Queen of the Earth as she appears in this story is as both a Life giving and Life receiving deity
