After Hercules killed his wife and children, he went to the oracle at Delphi, and prayed to the god Apollo for guidance. Hercules was told to serve the king of Mycenae, Eurystheus, for 12 years. During these 12 years, he is sent to perform twelve difficult feats, called labors. If he succeeded, he would be purified of his sin and, as myth says, he would be granted immortality.
