Hera is in most myths that involve Zeus being amorous with mortal women. She plays a particular role in the stories of Heracles and Echo (and Narcissus). She's often vengeful …and violent towards her husband's lovers
Hera is the wife of Zeus, but that didn't change the fact that he would go down to Earth and fall in love with hundreds of mortal girls and have hundreds of kids with them. He…ra was furious, so she would threaten all Zeus's children and wives. One time she spotted a thunder cloud were no cloud should be. Zeus had a mortal girl named Io with him that he was trying to hide from Hera. When he saw Hera coming he quickly changed her into a beautiful cow. When Hera got there she acted like she suspected nothing. Hera asked him for the cow and Zeus knew he couldn't refuse his wife such a small gift so he gave her the cow. Hera tied the cow to a tree that was guarded by Hera's faithful servant named Argus who had 100 eyes all around his body and was huge and strong. Zeus felt sorry for her so he sent his son Hermes to release the cow. Hermes walked next to Argus disguised as a shepherd and played a little tune on his reed pipes. Argus enjoyed his company because he got lonely. Hermes told Argus a story that had no beginning and no end. Soon 50 of his eyes closed shut, then another 50 eyes closed shut. Hermes put a spell on Argus so he would never open his eyes again. Argus was bored to death. Hermes then released the cow. When Hera found out her faithful servant was dead and that the cow was gone she put his 100 eyes on her favorite animal, the peacock. She sent a huge gadfly that would sting the cow. The gadfly never stopped stinging the cow and the cow never stopped running away. She ran and ran around the world. In the end the cow was changed back into a girl and she became the queen of Egypt, but Zeus was forbidden from ever seeing her again.
In Greek society children born lame were often abandoned in the wild; Hera when Hephaestus was born saw that he was ugly/lame threw him into Oceanus to hide him; where Thetis …and Eurynome caught and received him.
One myth was the apple of Eris(discord). The short version is that Eris, goddess of discord gave an apple to Paris with the inscription fairest. 3 goddess claimed the apple, H…era, Aphrodite, and Athena. Paris chose Aphrodite. Another one is that when Hera gave birth to Hephaestus, she was so disgusted with his ugliness that she threw him from Olympus. To revenge her Hephaestus built her a magic throne that she couldn't get up from. He released Hera after the gods gave him Aphrodite as his wife.
In Greek mythology, Hera was the wife and sister of Zeus, the king of the gods. She was the daughter of the Titans Cronos and Rhea. After she was born, she and her siblings we…re swallowed by Cronos, who was jealous of their potential power. Only her brother Zeus was saved by Rhea. Zeus later fed his father a poison which caused Cronos to vomit his children out of his stomach. When Cronos was dead, Zeus and his brothers divided the kingdom between themselves, leaving their sisters with nothing. This infuriated Hera. Depending on which version you read, Zeus either seduced or kidnapped Hera and forced her to marry him. It was not a very happy marriage, due to Hera's jealous nature and Zeus's countless mistresses and illegitimate children. Their arguments were said to shake Mount Olympus. Hera went on to bear four children (Hephaestus, Ares, Ilithyia, and Hebe) and to terrorize Zeus's other lovers and children.
Hera, the wife of Zeus, features prominently in most Greek Mythology.
