Queen of the Gods
Greek Goddess of Women, Marriage, Childbirth, & Motherhood

She is the daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea, and sister of Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Demeter, and Hestia.

Consorts & Children:
Through Zeus, her brother and husband, she's the mother of Hebe, Hephaestus, Ares, Eris ("strife"), and Eilethyia, goddess of childbirth, and stepmother of Apollo and Artemis, Heracles, and Dionysus, among others.

Notable Stories Involving Her:
Most stories involving Hera highlight her jealousy over Zeus's numerous affairs and the illegitimate children produced by these unions. However, one story describes how she used her wiles and the girdle of Aphrodite, which made the wearer irresistible to both gods and mortal men, to seduce Zeus so that the other gods could meddle in the Trojan War.

Her attributes are a pomegranate and a diadem, and her sacred animals are the cow and the peacock.

Hera Around the World:
Her Roman equivalent is Juno, though she's also been identified with the Egyptian Isis, the Egyptian Hathor, the Celtic Danu, and the Norse Frigg.
