Hera is so much more than Zeus' vengeful wife. She has her own experiences, her own traumas, that affect how she handled her life with the king of the gods. This is why Hera is the way she is.
CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
