THE MYTHS & LEGEND COLLECTION
GODDESS HERA AND THE CUCKOO
HERA’s STORY OF COMPASSION
One day, Zeus, the King of the Gods, was walking around the beautiful region of Hesperides, when suddenly he spotted Hera and fell head over heels in love with her. In order to approach Hera, Zeus transformed himself into a cuckoo and then he placed himself outside her window, pretending to be frozen by the cold.
At the sight of the bird, Hera felt sorrow and pity and took it inside her house. Once inside, Zeus revealed his true identity and made love to Hera. Then, he grabbed Hera and brought her to the mountain of Cithaeron to make her his legal wife, so that she could cover her shame.
