Zeus sought the assistance of the gods in the freeing his Queen and offered the goddess Aphrodite in marriage to the god who could bring Hephaistos to Olympos. One of the Greek legends is that Hephaistos, when he was born, was thrown down by Hera.
Aphrodite agreed to the arrangment in the belief that her beloved Ares would prevail. In revenge he sent as a gift a golden chair with invisible fetters.
Hephaistos was pleased with the plan and ascended to Heaven with Dionysos, released his mother and wed the reluctant Love-Goddess. Therefore Neptunus [Poseidon], because he was hostile to Minerva [Athene], urged Volcanus [Hephaistos] to ask for Minerva in marriage." [N. The requested bride was perhaps Aphrodite rather than Athene in the original version of this story.] "Deimos (Fear) : [Deimos] and Phobos (Fright) and Kydoimos (Din of War), attendants of Ares, the sons of war; they too experienced what Ares did, after Hephaistos had not been frightened by them." [N. When Ares tried to fetch Hephaistos to Olympos to release Hera from the throne, the prize for this labour being the hand of Aphrodite in marriage, which Hephaistos claimed for himself.] On the Francois vase (C6th BC Athenian Black Figure) Hera is depicted trapped on the throne with her hands raised helplessly, as Ares, who has failed, sits in a humble pose with Athena looking scornfully at him.
