Who was Aphrodite?

Aphrodite showed up one day, thousands of years ago, and began appearing in myths. According to the stories that sprang up about her, she was as vain as she was beautiful, and she was very beautiful. Zeus was delighted to claim her as his daughter. Zeus gave Aphrodite the title of goddess of love and beauty. She worked very hard at her job, but her plans for people (and gods) did not always work out the way she thought they would, which caused no end of trouble.
