Apollo and Artemis were two twins born by the king of the gods Zeus and Leto, a daughter of the Titans Coeus (Titan of Intelligence) and Phoebe (Titaness of brilliance and the moon).
For nine days and nine nights Leto was suffering from strong pains, until on the tenth day, Leto went close to a small lake on the Island of Delos, leaned against a palm tree, unfastened her belt and gave birth to Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt.
Artemis then acted as a midwife to her mother to bring her brother Apollo to the world. For this reason, she was declared as the new goddess of the childbirth, taking the place of Hera’s daughter Eilithyia.
Thus came to be Artemis, goddess of the moon and Apollo, god of the Sun.
