Apollo and Artemis in Greek Mythology

Apollo and Artemis are 2 of the many children of Zeus. Apollo, who was the favourite son of Zeus was the God of the Sun and Music, while Artemis was the Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. But before they became a God and Goddess, while still in their mother’s womb, Leto, nobody wanted anything to do with them. This was because, everyone was afraid of the wrath of Hera who at the time was the current wife of Zeus.

While Leto was going into labor, nowhere and no one in Greece was willing to offer a shelter for Leto. Thus she had to wander around desperately and aimlessly while enduring the labor pains without any help. What’s worse was that throughout her pregnancy, she was pursued by a giant serpent called Python making her have little to no rest even to that day.
