Hercules the son of Zeus and Alcmena, is the most popular of all Greek heroes and famous for extraordinary strength and courage. He was the protector of athletics and the founder of the Olympic Games. When he was only eighteen he killed a lion, and for the rest of his life he would carry its skin. The most popular story is the twelve arduous labors, such as killing the Nemean lion and Hydra, catching the Erymanthian boar and the Cerynean worshipped as either a god or a hero for protection from those various evils.
