Her cult was so strong that those from the north made Hera the consort of Zeus and integrated her into their pantheon. Although married to Zeus, their marriage was an all but faithful and happy one. Their relationship was full of many quarrels and infidelities on the part of Zeus. This often turned Hera into a vengeful woman, that was out to get revenge on anyone available.
