Nemesis was the mother of Helen, who was called the most beautiful woman on Earth because her beauty rivaled even Aphrodite's.
Her other names include Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia (the goddess of Rhamnous, an ancient city in Attica.)
She is said to be the daughter of primordial gods Nyx, the goddess of night and Erebus, the god of darkness.
Greek sculptors depicted her with wings. Instead of just being a goddess, her name also means vengeance or enemy, which is where the word nemesis comes from.
Her name translates too ‘to give what is due.’
Her role in Greek mythology is to avenge and deal out 'bad luck' to those unfortunate people who showed hubris (pride) to the gods.
