The son of the God of Gods, the legendary hero of Rome Hercules had never been loved by her step mother Hera. She tried to kill him from the moment he had born. While she hadn’t killed him, she put him into so great rage. Driven mad by Hera, Hercules killed his own children and wife. Hercules deeply regretted because of his unconscious actions. He tried to find a way to be atoned for his sins. He consulted to the Oracle. Oracle advised him to serve King Eurysteus for twelve years, performing whatever labours he might set him; in return he would be awarded with immortality. Placed himself at King’s disposal, Hercules was supposed to accomplish the twelve labours he had been assigned.
