2. Hercules Was The Son Of Zeus
Hercules is perhaps the most admired of all Greek heroes for his peak physical condition and courage. Despite his great deeds, he was cursed by Hera, which drove him insane and made him kill his wife and children. To make up for his wrongdoings, he had to complete the “Twelve Labours”, a series of episodes concerning a penance. The series were often included in epic poems, dramas and art. Hercules is often portrayed as a muscular man wearing a lion skin and wielding a club.
