Leda was the queen of Sparta, and wife of Tyndareus. During a tryst with the Olympian god Zeus she spawned her daughter Helen of Sparta.[2]

Eventually, she was granted a home on Olympus as a goddess. She has only been seen as recently as 1949, when she was feuding with Juno (Hera) over exchanging glances with Jupiter (Zeus).[3]

Semele once stated that if Hades wanted tales of horror about Zeus, he should go to Leda (or to Europa).[4]
