Greek Mythology Hercules - The Mortal who became God

Written by Randy Wilson

Hercules isrepparttar offspring of Zeus,repparttar 138451 king of gods and a woman of earth. It is said that Hera, Zeus' green-eyed wife tried to do way with him when he was only an infant. Hera sent a couple of serpents to slay him. Nevertheless,repparttar 138452 serpents landed inrepparttar 138453 little but powerful hands of Hercules only to meet their fate.

When Hercules was born to Alcmene, she named him Herakles. But in Roman, Herakles is pronounced Hercules, which isrepparttar 138454 name we use for Hercules to this day. Hercules in Greek mythology is a great figure of valor and muscle strength. Hercules bravery earned him a place amongrepparttar 138455 gods. After he leftrepparttar 138456 mortal world, he found a position on Mount Olympus,repparttar 138457 gods' dwelling place.

Zeus,repparttar 138458 King ofrepparttar 138459 gods was an unfaithful husband. He had a weakness for worldly pleasures. He fell in love with Alcmene,repparttar 138460 wife of Amphitryon. In a short time, Alcmene conceived Hercules. This angered Hera and she tried to kill Hercules. Hercules survived his first fatal assault with a miracle.

When Hercules reached adulthood he became a famous warrior. He also fell in love with a beautiful woman called Megara. Megara becamerepparttar 138461 mother of Hercules' children and together they made a happy family. However, things were to be different. Hera took a vow to irritate Hercules during his lifetime. She tricked Hercules into a wild rage. In his rage,repparttar 138462 mortal god Hercules killed his family. This was exactly what Hera wanted!

When Hercules returned to his normal state of mind, he saw things were beyond remedy. He prayed to Apollo to get rid of his crime. Apollo wasrepparttar 138463 sun god who could read intorepparttar 138464 future. We find in Greek Mythology that Hercules requested his advice. Apollo assigned him ten important tasks (later it was turned to twelve) asrepparttar 138465 way of purifying his soul.

The Delphic oracle sent him to Tiryns whererepparttar 138466 king Eurystheus ruled. Hercules was expected to serve him as laborer for twelve years of his life. However,repparttar 138467 difficult service was not fruitless. Apollo promised him immortality. He was to become a god. However,repparttar 138468 great Hercules of greek mythology had one problem, Hera. She actually kept her promise to make Hercules' life as wretched as she could. Nevertheless, withrepparttar 138469 assistance of Hermes and Athena, Hercules pulled off his term of twelve years with excellence. In addition, he becamerepparttar 138470 greatest mortal onrepparttar 138471 earth to become a god.

Hercules In Greek Mythology – What Made Him So Special?
The honorable penance of Hercules and his eventual success is what makes him so special. His success brought him immortality, which would have been unthinkable for ordinary mortals. Hercules' first task was to peel offrepparttar 138472 skin ofrepparttar 138473 horrifying Nemean Lion after capturing one. His next task was to kill The Lernean Hydra. The Lernean Hydra was a serpent with nine heads, which never gave peace torepparttar 138474 lives of those around it. The third task for him was to bring a Hind (a sacred red deer) from Ceryneia torepparttar 138475 king. The deer wasrepparttar 138476 pet of Diana,repparttar 138477 Moon goddess.

The fourth task for Hercules was to bring a live Erymanthian Boar. It was very dangerous to men and animals living aroundrepparttar 138478 mountain Erymanthus. Then Hercules was asked to clean up King Augeas' stables in one day. Are you thinking what is so great about it? King Augeas had an awesome amount of cattle of cows, bulls, goats, sheep and horses. Hercules proposed to King Augeas that he would cleanrepparttar 138479 stable only if he rewarded Hercules with a tenth of his cattle.
