This was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, in Greek Mythology, who was made queen of the underworld by Pluto. Her Roman equivalent is Proserpina.

Despoina was not the daughter of Zeus and Demeter as a previous commenter stated. The Greek equivalent of Proserpina was Persephone. Despoina was the daughter of Poseidon and Demeter.

This name should be added to the 'Greek Mythology' section, for Despoina was a daughter of Demeter and Poseidon in Greek mythology. [noted -ed]
