After Hercules' death, he tried to destroy everything related to Hercules, but was eventually defeated by Hercules' son Hyllus and was dragged towards Alcmena (Hercules' mother). He tried to explain to her he was doing Hera's will, but Alcmena pierced his eyes and Hyllus beheaded him.
Hera came to the lifeless body and resurrected him, and Eurystheus sewed his head back.
Over the years, he trained to cope with blindness, and also used plastic surgery.
Hercules managed to pass the final labor: Obtaining the forgiveness of his wife Megara, whom he had murdered millenia before. Hera consequently left the enraged Eurystheus to confront Hercules. After a brief brawl, Eurystheus was decapitated by a falling mounted shield.
Eurystheus had an expanded life span granting him nearly indefinite life.
