Proserpina is the goddess of Spring and queen the Underworld in Roman mythology.

In Greece, there was a goddess who was like Proserpina called Persephone. It is likely that her name comes from the Latin word "proserpere," which means "to emerge" or to come out, in English. She was the daughter of Ceres and Jupiter
