Queen of All Gods: Hera

Hera was born in Samos (on the Coast of Turkey) to Cronus and Rhea. She is the God of marriage and the Queen of all gods. She possesses the typical powers of an Olympian, including: super strength, super speed, shapeshifting and teleportation.

The goddess of marriage is just like what you would expect... and unlike most of the male gods, Hera is mostly loyal when it comes to marriage. With her husband Zeus, Hera had three children: Ares, Eileithyia and Hebe. If it weren’t for Hera, the Olympians would not work together because she is basically the glue that keeps the family of gods together.

Key Characteristics:

  • Cunning

  • Loyal

  • Wise

  • Creative

  • Reflective

Mythical Tale

Being married to a disloyal husband, Hera was constantly cheated on. However there was one time that stood out the most... when Zeus had a baby with a mortal woman. But it was no ordinary demigod; it was none other than the hero Heracles- otherwise known as Hercules. Seeing how much Zeus loved the young hero, Hera was furious and hated Heracles. She was so mad that she gathered two giant snakes to kill the baby. However, Heracles was much stronger than she thought and grabbed the two reptiles by the neck and strangled them.
