The goddess of all gods
Hera was often portrayed with a crown just like many other goddesses
Hera grew up being known as the most beautiful women but Aphrodite took that later on.
Hera and Zeus
This is a picture of Hera and her husband Zeus. It also shows one of her symbols which is a peacock
She was raised by both Oceanus and Tethys, who were both Titans. Hera's siblings were, Poseidon, Hades, Zeus, Hestia, and Demeter. Hera would end up marring Zeus and they had three children. They were Eilithyia, Ares, and Hebe. Elithyia was the goddess of childbirth. Ares was the god of war. Demeter was the goddess of youth.
Her symbols show who Hera was and what she controlled. Hera has a symbol of a peacock because its shows that she is immortal. She has a symbol of a cuckoo because Hera was always repressented with one. It was told that she was in love with these birds and these birds were mounted on a temple of where her statue was.
The peacock was shown with Hera because the bird has many eyes which represent that she was always watching.
These birds have been seen to have been buried with one of her statue.
These fruits also represent fertility for Hera because she was the god of childbirth.
What is Hera the goddess of?
Hera was the goddess of marriage , which is pretty ironic because she always had trouble with her own marriage. Zeus and her always had their troubles because Zeus was always with some other women. Hera was most known of jealously. Hera always seemed to be jelouse of all the women that were with Zeus. She wanted to be with Zeus and only her.
