Eventually, Juno, his jealous stepmother, drove Hercules insane. Due to his insanity, Hercules killed his wife, Megara, and their three children. Hercules exiled himself because of the shame that he had brought on himself through his lack of sanity. Later in life Hercules went to the town of Thebes and married Deianira. She bore him many children.
