Hippolyta (meaning ‘Wild Horse’ or ‘Free Rider’) was the queen of the Amazons at the end of the Bronze Age. While her younger sister Penthesilea led their vengeful tribe to war, Hippolyta was more concerned with securing a peaceful future for her people.
A seasoned veteran by the time of the Trojan War, Hippolyta’s fiery character had been tempered by years of fighting legendary figures such as Theseus and Heracles. A skilled diplomat, she was a peacemaker whose single obsession was the establishment of an Amazon kingdom that would endure the ages.
According to myth, Hippolyta was the war god Ares’ daughter. To bless his child, the Olympian gave her a magic gridle which would come to symbolise her rule. Later, Heracles was tasked to retrieve it for his ninth labour, resulting in the legendary warrior stealing Hippolyta’s prized belt and sailing away with it.
