I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this... just generally? Well for one, her husband cheated on her constantly, and most of her conflicts (granted she started them) were related to her attempting to take revenge of Zeus's mistresses and illegitimate children. One legend says that she rejected he…r son Hephaestus who then trapped her on a throne (from which only he could release her). More information about what you want to know would be helpful.

Yes: Area, Eris, Hebe, Eileithyia and Hephaestus. Hera definitely had three kids with Zeus: Ares (Mars) (war god), Hebe (Juventas) (goddess of youth), and Eileithyia (Lucina) (goddess of birth-pain). According to different myths Hera had Hephaestus (god of the forge) by herself, or with Zeus.

Hera did not want to marry Zeus, but Zeus changed himself into abird, and then made storms rage over him so then Hera felt pity onthe bird into her hands. Then Zeus changed and said that Hera hadto marry him. Feeling trapped Hera agreed to marry him because shefelt pity on this poor bird
No, Hercules is the son of Zeus and Alcmene. Since Hera is the wife of Zeus, she did not have much affection for Hercules, nor for Alcmene.
Athena was both Zeus' wife and daughter. Zeus' wife was Hera and Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon were his brothers and sisters.
You realize you're asking the age of a being born before history and immortal. She isn't a vampire; they don't get more powerful with age or anything. The only reference we can really have is that she was "born" before he was (since he was the youngest).
Hera didn't want to marry Zeus. In fact, Zeus turned into a cuckoo and flew threw her window. As she held the bird tight, he turned himself back and took advantage and raped her. she was then forced to be married to him and he would cover her shame.

Yes. Hera, like Zeus, is a one of the six gods who are children of Kronos and Rhea. Zeus is the youngest of those children, and Hera is the second youngest.
Depends on which tale you take. One story tells of her being raped by Zeus and she married him to save face. Another she willing choose him. Another they choose each other.
Zeus may be a Greek god, but he is still flawed in personality. He cheated on Hera because he was a sex fiend and he falls in love quickly. When he wants a woman, he does everything to get her. Using his charms, beauty, and even sometimes, trickery. The way he made Hera his own was also trickery. He… turned himself in to a cuckoo bird and Hera felt bad for it, so she hugged the bird into her chest and Zeus took advantage of the moment and raped her. ( Full Answer )

it was pretty bad as zues cheated o her many times on many different women. Because of thsi she took it out on us humans and she tried to kill him many times
I don't know that Hera ever wrote anything to Zeus. Correspondence between the gods would have been unnecessary as they were omnipresent.
The first encounter between Hera and her husband Zeus, king of all the gods, was in the region of the Hesperides. Hera was not responding to his attempts to seduce her so he resorted to trickery that appealed to Hera's nurturing side. It was winter and Zeus turned himself into a cuckoo that appeared… to be frozen from the cold. Hera, feeling sorry for the bird turned to her motherly instincts as she held the bird tightly to her breast to warm it. Zeus then turned himself back into his normal shape and took advantage of the surprised state Hera was in. Unable to fight him off, Hera was raped and then persuaded to marry him to cover her shame. ( Full Answer )
He seduced her in the shape of a cuckoo bird and was thereby able to gain her affections.
Actually, Hera is Zeus' both wife and sister but not his mother. Their mother was the Titan Rhea, their father was the Titan Kronos. Plus, in myths, there's kinda no such thing as DNA so it wasn't really gross for god/goddess to marry each other. I hope this answer helped.
Zeus is not afraid of Hera. Any deference that he is shown making to her is to teach a moral lesson to the Greeks; remain faithful to your wife.
No. The peacock was Hera's favorite bird, but was previously unadorned. It wasn't until the death of her servant, Argus Panoptes (who had 100 pairs of eyes), that the eyes became a prominent feature on the birds plumage.
Hera was the only wife of Zeus, and she killed none of his other consorts.
he constantly cheated on her which in turn made her jealous Zeus and Hera were the prototype for what it meant to be male and female in ancient Greece. Zeus was domineering, virile, and philandering, not out of disrespect, but because it was his nature. Likewise, Hera was the paragon of fidelity. …She was passive-aggressive, demure, and jealous of Zeus conquests, going so far as to manipulate circumstances against them. This is how the Greeks viewed men and women. ( Full Answer )
Zeus had lots of sons and daughters. It was very common for the ancient Greeks to claim that some hero or founder of a city was the son of a god, usually Zeus. The guy really got around. Apollo and his twin sister Artemis are said to have come from him. Also Athene, Persephone, Hephaistos and Hermes…. Some heroes who were said to be half brothers (lots of different moms) of Ares include Herakles and Orpheus. I think Hephaistos was the only other one said to have Hera as his mother. Maybe Hermes, too. ( Full Answer )
Yes, but Zeus was known to sire many children with a multitude of other women.
No one was tricked, Hera is the goddess of marriage so marrying the king of the gods is a given, they don't like each other much, but have to be together to keep up an image
They began as brother and sister, just as his mother and father, Cronus and Rhea, were also siblings. It would seem that incest is alright so long as you're a god. How she became his wife is not clear, but as the Goddess of Marriage, Women and Birth, she may well have arranged it herself, and thus b…ecame Queen of the Gods. ( Full Answer )
They are both Gods. Hera is Zeus' consort (amongst many others) and is also his younger sister.
They were never friends, they were brother and sister and then married to become the King and Queen of Olympus.
