Who are Hercules children?
Hercules killed them in a drunken rage....so they didn't really do much.
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.
Where Hercules is credited with two wives they most likely are Megara, where his children by her are Therimachus Creontiades Ophitus Deicoon His children by Deianira are: Hyllus Ctesippus Glenus Oneites Macaria Note that Hercules had many other children not listed here, in affairs with women he never married.
Hercules has four wives: Megara Children: Therimachus Creontiades Ophitus Deicoon All his children by her he killed in his fit of madness, Megara was later married to Iolaus. Omphale, the Lydian queen/princess. Hercules was her slave, and by him she had: Agelaus Tyrsenus/Maleus His third wife was Deianira (who caused his death). Her children with him are: Hyllus Ctesippus Glenus Oneites Macaria His final wife was the goddess Hebe, of youth, with whom he had…
Hera cursed him with fits of madness. During one of his fits, he thought his children were wild beasts so he killed them. He was horrified when he came back to his senses. Hera hated Hercules because he was the living proof of her husband cheating on her. So she forced Hercules to go mad and kill his family.
Hercules was the half-mortal son of Zeus, through Aclmene, making him just another of several illegitimate children of Zeus. Hera, the goddess of marriage, certainly can't tolerate symbols of her husband's extramarital activities and was often vengeful against his lovers and children. Hercules, thus, is not an exception to this.
Hercules, after killing his wife, Megara, and their children under the influence of a madness sent by Hera, is so upset that he wants to kill himself. However, he is saved by Theseus who clasps his bloodstained hands. This shows that Theseus is willing to have a part in Hercules' guilt. Theseus then tells Hercules to return to Athens with him.
