Hera – Greek Mythology – Hera was Queen of the Greek Gods. Hera was the wife and one of three sisters of Zeus. She was the goddess of women and marriage. She was also a goddess of the sky and starry heavens. Hera's mother was Rhea and her father Cronus. Hera was known for her jealous and vengeful nature, most notably against Zeus's lovers and offspring, but also against mortals who crossed her, such as Pelias. Paris offended her by choosing Aphrodite as the most beautiful goddess, earning Hera's hatred. Hera had six children (Ares, Enyo, Hebe, Eileithyia, Hephaestus and Eris). The cow and the peacock were sacred to her. She was usually depicted as a beautiful woman wearing a crown and holding a royal, lotus-tipped staff. Sometimes she held a royal lion or had a cuckoo or hawk as her familiar. Some of Hera’s symbols include the pomegranate, peacock feather and diadem.
