Storyboard Text

  • Hercules
  • Hercules saved Rome
  • centaur death
  • The Romans adapted the Greek hero's iconography and myths for their literature and art under the name Hercules. In later Western art and in popular culture, Hercules is more commonly used than Heracles as the name of the hero.
  • Hercules Brothers
  • Hercules had a number of myths that were distinctly Roman. One of these is Hercules' defeat of Cacus, who was terrorizing the countryside of Rome. The hero was associated with the Aventine Hill through his son Aventinus. Mark Antony considered him a personal god, as did the emperor Commodus.
  • How Hercules died
  • Hercules, justly enraged, drew one of his poisoned arrows and shot the centaur.
  • My Life Lesson
  • Hercules was Apollo and Dionysus ' half-brother through their father Zeus. Disguised as Amphitryon, Zeus paid a conjugal visit to Amphitryon's wife, Hercules' mother, the Mycenaean princess Alcmene.
  • When Hercules put on the tunic, it burned his skin. He was in such excruciating pain that he wanted to die. Note that the burning would have killed an ordinary human, but Hercules was not such a one.
  • My life lesson is to give everything he had and not stop even when hope looked like a candle flame that a giant just spat on.
