Hera (Greek) / Juno (Roman)
Daughter of Cronus and Rhea, wife and sister of Zeus, queen of heaven, and a mother/fertility goddess.
Hera was swallowed by Cronus as soon as she was born (see Cronus). Zeus forced Cronus to cough her up, and made her his wife. Zeus and Hera had four children: Ares, god of war, Hephaestus the smith god, Ilithyia the fertility goddess, and Hebe, the lowly cupbearer to the gods. After Athena burst from Zeus' head, Hera was so enraged at the adultery that she immediately produced the Typhon, a monster who was usually referred to as Gaia's child.
Hera tortured children born of her husband's infidelity. Zeus hung Hera by her wrists from a peak on the mountain and placed weights on her feet after he could no longer control his rage toward her inflictions upon his children. In the Roman myth, Hercules became immortal by nursing from Juno. A month was named after her, once called Junonius, now June, considered the best month for weddings.
