Hera, Goddess of marriage

Though goddess of marriage and the family, Hera was a jealous and vengeful wife.  Her vengeance was wrought upon the many mistresses of her husband, the philandering Zeus, and their offspring too – She prevented Leto from giving birth, forcing her to wander about endlessly when the moment for the birth came.

Her sacred plants were the apples of immortality, the pomegranate which is a symbol of marriage together with the Iris, oranges and willow.

She embodies strength and beauty.
