In Greek mythology, Euphrosyne (//; Εὐφροσύνη) was one of the Charites, known in English also as the "Three Graces". Her best remembered representation in English is in Milton's poem of the active, joyful life, "L'Allegro". She is also the Goddess of Joy or Mirth, a daughter of Zeus and Eurynome, and the incarnation of grace and beauty. The other two Charites are Thalia (Good Cheer) and Aglaea (Beauty or Splendor).
According to Greek mythology, the Charites were daughters of Zeus and the Oceanid Eurynome. The Greek poet Pindar states these goddesses were created to fill the world with pleasant moments and good will.
