Juno is one of the Lords of Kobol in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In the religion of the Ancient Romans, she is the goddess who protects the Roman nation and keeps watch over women's lives.

Lord of Kobol[]

Juno gives her name to the Caprican month of Junius. Tad Thorean was born on the fourth day of her month in 27YR. The MAGLEV Bombing Memorial Service is held on Junius 7, 42YR, exactly one month after the bombing. ("Rebirth") ("Know Thy Enemy")

Ancient Roman Religion[]

Juno was a Roman goddess, the wife and sister of Jupiter, the chief Roman god, and the two of them were worshipped along with the goddess Minerva on the Quirinal in Rome.

Juno protected the Roman nation as a whole, but also kept special watch over all aspects of women's lives. She was the protector of legally married women. She was the protector of one in confinement, often pictured wearing a goatskin, carrying a spear and shield. She was Juno Lucina, a word meaning light, the goddess of childbirth. To others she was the goddess who made people remember, the goddess who alerted people. She was Juno Moneta, the moon goddess, who was a personage unique to Rome.

Although she is often thought of as the Roman version of Hera, the Greek goddess of love and marriage, she is not to be confused with her Greek counterpart. In every aspect, Juno was a goddess in her own right.[2]
