HistoryEdit

Hera is a deity, the daughter of Cronus and the older sister of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon and younger sister of Demeter and Hestia. When Cronus dethroned Uranus (or Ouranos), he told him a prophecy that one day, one of his children will do the same and dethrone him, so Cronus ate each of his children, including Queen Hera. Hera helped Zeus and the other Olympian gods defeat the titans in the titanomachy. Once the titans were destroyed, Mount Olympus was made and Zeus raped Hera then took her as his wife and the queen of the gods. While Zeus is the most powerful god of the Olympians, he didn't stop Hera from harming his children as he knew that Hera would not be powerful enough to destroy his sons, e.g. Heracles (or Hercules), Perseus, etc. According to myths, Hera was always jealous with Zeus' affairs and lovers and therefore would try to kill his children that he bore with others. Some famous examples would be Perseus, Heracles (Herakles or Hercules) and Tantalus. However, since she was so jealous that Zeus had made Athena by himself, Hera decided she would bore a child on her own as well. So that's how Hephaestus was created, however, Hephaestus was so ugly that even Hera through him off Mount Olympus.
