Hera, also called Juno by the Romans, was the queen of the gods and wife of Zeus in pagan Greek mythology. She is depicted of being the goddess of marriage and birth, and of being jealous and vengeful with regards to Zeus' many affairs. A famous myth involving Hera is the Judgment of Paris wherein Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite were placed before Paris of Troy in order for him to judge 'the fairest'. Each attempted to bribe him with a gift: worldly power, wisdom, or a beautiful wife, Helen of Troy, respectively. He chose Aphrodite's gift, thus angering Hera and Artemis and precipitating the Trojan War.
