Minor Greek Goddess Eris Cover
Eris is best known as the goddess of strife. She was known to often follow her brother Ares into battle. She frequently helped him to cause quarrels and lawlessness. Authors say that she helped to cause the Trojan War by tossing her apple of discord into the guests at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. Thress of these guests then competed to win the golden apple.

Eris is the daughter of Zeus and Hera. Her name translates into Latin as Discordia. Her Greek opposite is Harmonia, whose Latin counterpart is Concordia. In addition to her main activity of sowing discord, she frequently accompanies her brother Ares to battles. On these occasions she rides his chariot and brings her son Strife. Eris is unpopular and frequently snubbed as a guest by the other gods and mankind.
