Some say that Nephele was a Centaur who bore a son called Nessus. Nepehele is also known as a Nymph who features in the story of Phrixua and Helle. In other stories Nephele is a cloud in the shape of Hera that was created by Zeus to test Ixion. Zeus suspected Ixion of courting with Hera. Ixion could not resist his lust for Hera ad so he slept with Nephele and as a result Nephele gave birth to the Centaurs.
