Hera had the opportunity to bless and protect a woman's marriage, bring fertility, protect children and ensure financial security. Nevertheless, she was known for her vindictive and jealous nature, especially with regard to many lovers of her husband and their children, whom she often punished. Despite his anger at his infidelity, Hera remained faithful and faithful to her husband, having three of her children: Hebu, Ares and Hephaestus.
Historically, Hera was portrayed standing or sitting on the throne with a crown of polo on her head, holding a lotus in her hands. Her other symbols included a cuckoo, a representative of her marriage to Zeus, a peacock meaning immortality and a garnet symbolizing fertility. The lion was also considered sacred to Hera.
