Wife of Amphitryon and mother of the greatest hero of all time, Hercules.

Zeus admired Alcmene for her beauty and virtue.

One day, he took the form of her husband Amphitryon who was absent and slept with her.

On top of that, he ordered the Sun not to rise for two days, tripling the duration of one night.

The fruit of this weekend was the ultimate hero of the Greek mythology, Hercules.
