Themis is a daughter of Uranus (or Helios) and Ge. She was married to Zeus, by whom she became the mother of the Horae, Eunomia, Dice (Astraea), Eirene and the Moerae. In the Homeric poems, Themis is the personification of the order of things established by law, custom and equity, whence she is described as reigning in the assemblies of men; and as convening, by the command of Zeus, the assembly of the gods. She dwells in Olympus and is on friendly terms with Hera.
