Hera BY: AnnMarie, Melody, and Jayden

Hera was born to Cronus and Rhea but then swallowed by Cronus because he believed that one of his children would over throw him just as he over threw his father. She was raised by the Titans Oceanus and Tethys.

Hera was the wife and sister of Zeus. She was the supreme goddess, patron of marriage and childbirth, having a special interest in protecting married women. Even before her marriage with Zeus, she ruled over the heavens and the Earth. This is one reason why she is referred to as ‘The Queen of Heaven’ ruling over Mount Olympus where all the gods and goddesses live.

Her sacred animals were the cow and the peacock, and she favoured the city of Argos.

She is known mostly for her jealousy. She is often vicious and spiteful, and it is usually Zeus’s infidelity that incites her. Many unfortunate mortals endure hardships by provoking Hera’s wrath.

Hera was very vengeful and jealous of Zeus's offspring, especially Hercules. Zeus became so angry at her for raising a storm at sea in order to kill Hercules that he hung her in the clouds by a golden chain, and attached heavy iron blocks at her feet
