|First appearance||Hercules (1997)|
|Created by||Ron Clements John Musker|
|Voiced by||Susan Egan|
Megara is killed by Hercules after he is turned mad by the goddess Hera, Zeus’ wife, vengeful because Hercules was a product of her husband Zeus’ infidelity. Thus, Megara is a tragic figure, an innocent caught in the games of the gods who dies needlessly.
Contrary to seemingly popular opinion, she never actually appeared in the show.
Hercules married a second wife, Deianira. He won her hand in marriage by wrestling with the river-god Acheloos, who took the form of a centaur. During the fight, Hercules broke off one of Acheloos’ horns. Berlin F 1851, Attic black figure neck amphora, c.
Meg is much older than Hercules. When they first meet, Meg calls Hercules “junior”, which suggests she’s notably older than him. … She doesn’t talk or act like a teenager, and her mannerisms and voice are much more mature than Hercules’.
This leaves Megara feeling heartbroken and determined to never fall in love again. The man who left her is later revealed to be prince Adonis in the episode of the TV series Hercules the series.
Persephone, Latin Proserpina or Proserpine, in Greek religion, daughter of Zeus, the chief god, and Demeter, the goddess of agriculture; she was the wife of Hades, king of the underworld.
Wives and Children
Hercules’ first marriage was to Deianeira. He had three children with her: Aeson, Klonus, and Ilea. However, Hera killed Deianeira and all three children with a fireball. Hercules’ second marriage was to Serena.
Basically, Hera didn’t like him because she was the child of one of Zeus’s mistresses. … Hercules happened to be one of these children since his father was Zeus and his mother was mortal named Alcmene. She was described as a very beautiful woman, and when Zeus saw her, he knew he wanted to be with her.
APHRODITE The goddess of love and beauty was pursued by Zeus when she first emerged from the sea but managed to escape him. According to some, she later had an affair with the god, and through the curses of Hera bore a deformed son: the god Priapos (most sources however say his father was Dionysos).
Hera used her power to get inside Hercules’s head. He fell into madness and went insane with rage. Under Hera’s dark influence, he gruesomely murdered his beloved wife and children. It doesn’t get any more real than that.
In modern times, the term “Adonis” can be used to refer to a man who is desirable and attractive. The word has deep roots in ancient Greek mythology because Adonis is the god of beauty and attraction – a male counterpart for Aphrodite.Sep 13, 2019
So Meg is 18-19 years old (or 17, because it’s possible she is bit younger than Herc), but act like a mature woman, because of her difficult past. I think she’s late 20s early 30s. She looks older than Hercules and when they first meet she calls him “Junior”.
