Hercules, the most legendary half-god hero of mythology, famous not only for his enormous strength but also for his humble offer to the people.Hercules was born in Thiva, from the secret union of mortal Alkmini with King of the Gods, Zeus. His 12 labours were major heroic tasks that involved saving people from deadly mythical beasts. He helped Gods in their war with the Giants, when even his eternal enemy, Hera, Queen of Gods forgave him and offered him a place in Olympus. A story of strength, tragedy and redemption that made the son of Zeus the favorite hero of mankind.
Hercules (Pawn), the greatest hero of mythology, is often depicted wearing the lion skin from his first labor. Zeus (King), his father and King of Gods stands almighty with his thunderbolt in hand. Athena (Queen), armed defender of justice, always protected Hercules. Apollo (Bishop) took part in the Battle of the Giants. Centaur (Knight) kidnapped Hercules’s wife, so the hero killed him to save her. Ironically, years later it was his poisonous blood that caused Hercules death. The Castle is a replica of an Ionian column that represents the architectural rhythm of the period.
