Gods of Olympus


In Greek mythology, Hébé is the goddess of eternal youth and spring. She was the daughter of the god Zeus and the goddess Hera. Other sources state that Hera gave birth to her from within herself.

She is referred to as the "waitress of the Olympian gods". On Olympus, she poured nectar (the drink of eternal youth) for the gods and served ambrosia (the food of the gods, which imparted youth, beauty and immortality and acted as a balm).

When Zeus kidnapped Ganymede, he made him the new waiter of the gods. Hébé had to leave that position. She eventually married the hero Heracles, with whom she had two sons (Alexiares and Anicetus).
