Juno is the ancient Roman goddess of marriage and birth, family and family ordinances, motherhood, women, and female productive power. A daughter of Saturn and Opa. A sister of Pluto, Neptune, Ceres and Vesta. A sister and the spouse of Jupiter. The mother of Mars and Vulcan. In ancient Greek mythology, she is the equivalent of the goddess Hera.
The song I of the Aeneid tells about the persecution of Aeneas by the hostile goddess Juno (in Greek mythology, Hera, the hater of Hercules) and about the sea storm, which at the request of Juno sent the god of winds Aeolus to the Trojan squadron. Only with the help of the ruler of the sea Neptune seven ships of Aeneas are saved from this hurricane. They sail to African Carthage. The mother and patroness of Aeneas, the goddess Venus, asks Jupiter to help Aeneas to get the kingdom in Italy, and Jupiter agrees to this. In Song V, Aeneas arrives in Sicily, where he arranges games in honor of his deceased father, Anchises. The goddess Juno, without abandoning her hostility towards Aeneas, inspires his Trojan companions to set fire to their own fleet. But Jupiter helps put out this fire.
Virgil gives the main roles in the world of gods to Juno, hostile to Aeneas, and Venus, his mother, and protector. Both know the destiny destined for Aeneas, and both try only to deliver each other as much trouble as possible; but since dozens of lives are sacrificed to this, the opinion about the gods is created very low. Both of these goddesses throughout the poem show extreme short-sightedness.
