History

Twelve Labors of Hercules

In 1270 BC, Hercules went to Themiscyra, to steal the girdle of Hippolyta Queen of the Amazons, a gift from Hippolyta's father Ares. However the moment the two met it was an instant attraction and the two went to bed together. This happiness from Hercules angered Hera, who took the form of one of the Amazons, and made them believe Hercules was kidnapping their queen. He escaped buck naked, carrying the girdle and chased by the countless Amazons.[2]
