The twelve Labors of Hercules

The twelve labors of the mythical hero Hercules in order to purify himself for the murder of his wife and children, which he had committed when Hera drove him crazy, have been recorded in Greek mythology as the labors of Hercules. For this purpose, Hercules went to the Oracle of Delphi and received an oracle, according to which he had to serve for twelve years Eurystheus, king of Tiryns, and perform the labors that he commanded.
