The youngest of the Charites, Aglaea or Aglaia (Ἀγλαΐα) was one of three daughters of Zeus and either the Oceanid Eurynome or Eunomia, goddess of good order and lawful conduct. Her two sisters were Euphrosyne, and Thalia. Together they were known as the Three Graces, or the Charites. Aglaea was also known as Kharis ("the Grace") and Kale ("Beauty").
Aglaea was the goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence, and adornment. She and her sisters attended Aphrodite, and Aglaea sometimes acted as messenger for the goddess of love.
Aglaea was married to Hephaestus after his divorce from Aphrodite, and by him became mother of Eucleia (“Good Repute”), Eupheme (“Acclaim”), Euthenia (“Prosperity”), and Philophrosyne (“Welcome”).
