Hera was the goddess of storms because of the turbulent relationship she had with her husband, Zeus. She had female qualities of fertility combined with fickleness. She was honoured as Queen of the gods and she punished immoral behaviour by mortals - especially Zeus' lovers. For this reason, she was the goddess of marriage. The Romans called her Juno.
