Harmonia is the goddess who embodies agreement in marriage and society in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Aphrodite and Ares, thus making her sister to Eros, Anteros, Himeros, Pothos, Deimos, Phobos, Peitho and Hymenaios. Her Roman equivalent is Concordia.

She married Cadmus, son of Agenor of Phoenicia and founder of Thebes. On her wedding day, she received a cursed necklace that helped bring down the Seven Against Thebes.

She had a son - Polydorus, and several daughters - Agave, Autonoe, Ino and Semele, the latter two became goddesses in their own rights (as Leucothea and Thyone respectively). When her husband abdicated, she was succeeded in the queenship by Nycteis, her daughter-in-law.
