Hera (Juno) was
the protector of women and the goddess of marriage and childbirth.
She was the sister and wife of Zeus. She was very beautiful. Hera
hated her husband and his many mistresses.
Once Zeus had a
mistress named Princess Io. Zeus changed Io, a beautiful princess,
into a cow to hide her from Hera. When Hera found Io she made
Argus guard her. Zeus commanded Hermes to go kill Argus. When
Hermes killed Argus, he won the title of Argeiphontes (which means
slayer of Argus). When Hera found Argus dead, she took his 100
eyes and put them on the tail of her peacock to decorate it.
