What is the myth of hera?
The peacock, a lotus-tipped staff, hawks, royal lions, and cuckoos.
Throughout Greek mythology, Hera has played the role of the jealous wife. The often punishes the lovers and illegitimate children of Zeus. Some famous examples are in the myth…s of Dionysus, Apollo and Heracles.
Hera's sacred animals were the cow and, later, the peacock. She is often depicted on a throne and wearing the polos (a kind of tall crown). She may also hold a pomegranate, an… emblem of fertile blood and death and a substitute for the narcotic capsule of the opium poppy.
Hera was born on the island of Samos. She was a daughter of the Titans, Cronus and Rhea. She was swallowed whole by her father when she was born. The same as all her brothers …and sisters. Then Zeus was born. He made his father spit his siblings back up. They then overthrew their father and went to live on Mount Olympus.
some stories say Hera threw him off Olympus because he was uglyand didn't fit in with the gods, and Hephaestus was rescued by amermaid named Thetis. Hera found out Hephaestus …could makejewels,beautiful jewels,and took him back. other stories say Hera and Zeus were having and argument and sinceHephaestus took Heras side, he threw him off Olympus. some of them say Hephaestus, reject by his mother gave her a throneand she then realized she could not get up. Hephaestus wasn't goingto let her go until she arranged a marrige with Athena oraphrodite. she did and he married Aphrodite. . Just adding on to it, but a lot of other stories say that itvery well could have been and I quote "he was born that way"
A tale that uses supernatural themes to explain the practices of a particular culture / A story with great explanatory and cultural value to a society
She is the Queen of the Gods, married to Zeus, said to be the goddess of marriage. This is kind of ironic because Zeus always cheats on her. :) Hope this helps :)
Hera is the wife of Zeus, but that didn't change the fact that he would go down to Earth and fall in love with hundreds of mortal girls and have hundreds of kids with them. He…ra was furious, so she would threaten all Zeus's children and wives. One time she spotted a thunder cloud were no cloud should be. Zeus had a mortal girl named Io with him that he was trying to hide from Hera. When he saw Hera coming he quickly changed her into a beautiful cow. When Hera got there she acted like she suspected nothing. Hera asked him for the cow and Zeus knew he couldn't refuse his wife such a small gift so he gave her the cow. Hera tied the cow to a tree that was guarded by Hera's faithful servant named Argus who had 100 eyes all around his body and was huge and strong. Zeus felt sorry for her so he sent his son Hermes to release the cow. Hermes walked next to Argus disguised as a shepherd and played a little tune on his reed pipes. Argus enjoyed his company because he got lonely. Hermes told Argus a story that had no beginning and no end. Soon 50 of his eyes closed shut, then another 50 eyes closed shut. Hermes put a spell on Argus so he would never open his eyes again. Argus was bored to death. Hermes then released the cow. When Hera found out her faithful servant was dead and that the cow was gone she put his 100 eyes on her favorite animal, the peacock. She sent a huge gadfly that would sting the cow. The gadfly never stopped stinging the cow and the cow never stopped running away. She ran and ran around the world. In the end the cow was changed back into a girl and she became the queen of Egypt, but Zeus was forbidden from ever seeing her again.
Hera is known for her jealousy and her marriage to Zeus.

She was the Goddess of women and marriage. Zeus was a husband and a younger brother to her, and also the ruler of Mount Olympus. The cow and the peacock were sacred to her. He…ra is a goddess of marriages and childbirth. She is the god of marriage, and childhood. Make your answer make sense!!(:
