What a scorcher. The daughter of CADMUS, her burning passion for ZEUS led to flaming destruction when she was burned to a cinder during their brief affair.
It was all due to ZEUS’s jealous wife HERA, who was sick of rampant husband’s unfaithful shenanigans. Why, there was even a rumor that the two lovers had produced a baby called DIONYSUS.
So she devised the perfect way to destroy her rival. She forced her rampant husband to go on a date with SEMELE wearing his hottest, sexiest clothes. He was so gorgeous that the flames of desire were whipped up to white-hot level and SEMELE spontaneously combusted. HERA rubbed her hands in glee and ZEUS had an early night for once.
