Aurora, in Roman Mythology, is a titanid and a goddess of the dawn. Aurora is equivalent to the goddess Eos in Greek mythology and the Hindu goddess Ushas.
In Roman stories, Aurora renewed itself every morning at dawn and flew through the skies announcing the arrival of dawn.
Aurora is the daughter of the titans Hyperion and Teia, having as relatives her two brothers, the Sun, a solar deity (equivalent to Helium in Greek mythology) and Luna, the moon goddess (equivalent to Selene in Greek mythology). She also had many husbands and four children, the North, East, West and South winds, one of whom was killed.
One of her husbands was Titono, whom she had initially taken as a lover. Aurora asked Jupiter to grant immortality to Titonus, however, failed to ask him for eternal youth. As a result, Titono ended up aging forever.
William Shakespeare makes reference to Aurora in Romeo and Juliet.
