Hera - Juno Picture

Hera or Juno, was the wife and one of three sisters of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon of Greek mythology and religion. Her chief function was as the goddess of women and marriage. The cow and the peacock were sacred to her. Hera's mother was Rhea and her father Cronus. Portrayed as majestic and solemn, often enthroned, and crowned with the polos

The Disney version portrays Hera as a loving and kind mother to Hercules. She appears to be somewhat overprotective of him, as evidenced when she objects to her Husband Zeus letting the newborn Hercules play with his thunderbolts. She is voiced by Samantha Eggar. Hera does not seem to be as unfriendly to Hades as the other gods in the series, as shown when she persuaded Zeus to attend Hades' pool party. Was also great friends with its counterpart, the Norse goddess Frigg (goddess of women, marriage and motherhood).

(as a curiosity, Hera like her sisters, Demeter and Hestia are redheads xD)
