The origins may have begun with a fictitious individual known as Cupid. The actual Latin word is “cupido” and means desire. In Roman mythology Cupid is the son of Venus, goddess of love and in the Greek mythology version he is Eros, god of love. Cupid is known to shoot his arrows on both gods and mortals. The after effect from a wound caused by him is to fall in love.
Another "urban legend" suggests that Valentine was actually a priest during the third century in Rome. At that time, Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for the young men of the nation, while on their way to war. The emperor felt unmarried soldiers would be better soldiers.
Valentine defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages in secret. In 269 A.D, Valentine was discovered of breaking the law and the Emperor proclaimed the death penalty for Valentine ironically on February 14th.
Yet another version states that Valentine, while in prison, fell in love with the daughter of his jailer, named Julia. Prior to his execution, he wrote her letter, and signed it, 'From your Valentine.' This letter was considered the first valentine.
The stories behind Valentine’s Day are overcast with many doubts. It is apparent we may never know the accurate story, if any, leaving the truth to imagination.
