Juno Regina, The Story

Juno Regina

Juno Regina, Roman Imperial Period, marble, 200 CE

Juno was an ancient Roman goddess who was the daughter Saturn.  She married her younger brother Jupiter and became the mother of Mars and Vulcan.  Because Juno was the wife of Jupiter, the divine head of Rome, she was also called “Queen of Heaven” or simply queen (regina). In ancient Greece she was called Hera, but for the Romans Juno not only controlled fertility, but also leadership and war.
