Note: Although the creator of the Greek hero Hercules is lost to antiquity he appears in ancient plays by Sophocles, Euripides, and Seneca.
Hercules is the son of Zeus, king of the gods of Olympus, and Alcmena, a mortal woman who lived about three thousand years ago. Recognizing the need for a son who would be powerful enough to defend both the Olympian gods and humanity from future dangers Zeus seduced Alcmena in the guise of her husband, King Amphitryon of Troezen. Born with extraordinary strength the infant Hercules strangled two serpents sent by Zeus jealous wife Hera. As an adult, Hercules is best known for his celebrated Twelve Labors which earned him immortality from Zeus.
