Trivia[]

  • In Greek mythology, Hera was actually the stepmother of Hercules while Alcmene was the biological mother of Hercules. Zeus was said to have disguised himself as her husband, seduced her, and thus she became pregnant with Hercules. Alcmene later became aware of Zeus' affair, and she named her newborn baby "Heracles" in honor of Hera because the name means "glory/pride of Hera".
