Hera: The Goddess and Her Glory by George OConnorTheres only one thing Zeus, the king of the Gods, is afraid of. It isnt the many-headed Hydra or the towering Gigantes. It isnt his powerful, jealous brother Poseidon, the god of the seas. Monsters, gods, Titans—none of them make the mighty Zeus blink an eye.
The only thing Zeus fears is his wife: Hera. Goddess of the air, the sky, and the heavens, patroness of the cunning Jason, and scourge of the mighty Heracles, Hera rivals Zeus in power—and surpasses him in wrath.

Hera, the Goddess of Marriage
Hera is the Greek goddess of motherhood, marriage, family love, and women. She is the youngest daughter of Rhea and Kronos , as well as the older sister and wife of Zeus , therefore being the Queen of Olympus. Her Roman counterpart is Juno. Hera was the youngest daughter and third child of Kronos , the Titan King of Mount Othrys, and his sister-wife Rhea , born after her sisters, Hestia and Demeter. Since she was their most beautiful daughter, Rhea had hoped that Hera would not get swallowed. However, since Hera was a goddess a member of a more beautiful and powerful race of immortals than the Titans , Kronos, fearing that Hera would one day overpower him, quickly proceeded to swallow her whole as well. Hera, thus, spent her childhood undigested in her father's stomach along with her sisters, and two younger brothers Hades and Poseidon , who were swallowed shortly thereafter.

Hera is the Queen of the Gods and is the wife and sister of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon. Despite being the Goddess of Marriage, she was known to be jealous and vengeful towards the many lovers and offspring of her husband Zeus. She was also known to turn her anger towards mortals who crossed her as well — for example, Paris , who chose Aphrodite over Hera as the most beautiful goddess at the marriage of the sea-nymph Thetis to a mortal called Peleus. In images and statues, Hera is portrayed as being majestic and solemn, crowned with the polos — a high cylindrical crown worn by many of the Great Goddesses. Even before her marriage with Zeus, she ruled over the heavens and the Earth. Even the great Zeus feared his wife Hera.
She is the daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Hera rules over Mount Olympus as queen of the gods. A matronly figure, Hera served as both the patroness and protectress of married women, presiding over weddings and blessing marital unions. One of Hera's defining characteristics is her jealous and vengeful nature against Zeus' numerous lovers and illegitimate offspring, as well as the mortals who cross her. Hera is commonly seen with the animals she considers sacred including the cow , lion and the peacock. Portrayed as majestic and solemn, often enthroned, and crowned with the polos a high cylindrical crown worn by several of the Great Goddesses , Hera may hold a pomegranate in her hand, emblem of fertile blood and death and a substitute for the narcotic capsule of the opium poppy.
