Hera is Zeus' wife, Queen of the gods and goddess of Marriage and Womanhood.

History[]

Hera is one of the elder Olympian gods, the six children of the Titans Kronos and Rhea. She helped their sisters Hestia, Demeter and her brothers Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus overthrow their Kronos and the older members of their family, the Titans. Hera was tricked into marrying him when Zeus appeared to her as a bird. She told the bird "Oh, what use are men! If only I could marry you, my sweet sweet bird." At which point Zeus revealed his true identity and held her to her word. Hera is the goddess of marriage and the protector of women.

Trivia[]

  • The name Hera may not be a name but a title rather, believed to mean "beloved" or "lady".
  • In the myths Zeus was often at odds with Hera more than anyone else, on account of her being his wife and his constant infidelity. To make matters worse, she was also his sister.
  • It was often Hera who menaced Zeus' children, whereas Hades was more passive and often helpful to them.
