Hera, Greek goddess of marriage, womanhood, and childbirth, was also known as queen of the gods. Her name literally means “lady”, which could well be interpreted as “The Lady”, since she was considered the alpha female of all of the Greek goddesses. She was said to be one of the most beautiful - a trait that seems to have been of extremely high importance to the goddesses, but was also one of the most jealous and spiteful of anyone in Greek mythology.:
Iris-Keepr of the Rainbow. Throughout the ages, the rainbow has beenthe symbol of hope, a promise of better things to come. The ancient Greeks personified the rainbow as the goddess Iris. Carried by her shimmering wings, Iris traveled so swiftly that mortals can see only the trail of her rainbow-coloured passage arcorss the sky.
