The youngest of the Charites, Aglaea or Aglaia was Hephaestus' wife and Asclepius' daughter in Greek mythology. Other sources cite her and her sisters as the daughters of Zeus and the Oceanid Eurynome. With Charopus, she was the mother of Nireus. Her other two sisters were Euphrosyne, and Thalia. Together they were known as the Three Graces, or the Charites.
