In Roman Mythology no human was more beautiful than the mortal Psyche. Throughout her life, her beauty was to be her curse. The Goddess of Love and Beauty, Venus, was extremely jealous of this mortal, ordering her son, Cupid, to cast a spell on Psyche. Cupid, however, fell deeply in love with this beautiful mortal and secretly vowed to win her over his Mother's disapproval. The trials and exploits of Psyche are famous in both Roman and Greek Mythology.
In the end with the help of numerous other heavenly Gods, including Jupiter, himself, Cupid ascended with Psyche to the Heavens, making her immortal.
