Artemis is the daughter of Zeus, king of the gods, and Leto, daughter of the titans Coeus and Phoebe. When Leto was pregnant, Hera forbid any place to offer shelter to the woman who had seduced her husband. Zeus felt sorry for Leto so he decided to transform her into a quail to easily give birth to their children. They soon found an island by the name of Delos, that was willing to accept them. For nine days and nights, Leto suffered intense labor pains, until the tenth day when she finally gave birth to Artemis. Artemis then aided her mother in bringing her twin brother Apollo, god of the sun and music, into the world.
