    Hi Arcaea, we agree with your point that Artemis could have offspring and consorts but we can’t find any reliable sources about Aradia as her daughter. Do you have any links you can share?

  2. Avatar Arcaea says:

    Although Artemis is the virgin goddess of the hunt this doesn’t mean that she didn’t have any children. Her daughter Aradia was conceived by her twin brother Apollo which means he is one of her consorts.
