Queen Hippolyta is the ruler of the Amazons and mother of Diana and adopted mother of Donna Troy. She is also the first and later the fourth Wonder Woman, after Diana and Artemis.
It all began during the cavemen period. A caveman was angry that he was banished from his tribe. He encountered a woman who offered him some compassion. Later, she was murdered which was the first woman murdered by man's hatred. During 1300 BCE, the goddesses of Greece organised a meeting and discussed the creation of beings that would fit under their ideals. Zeus and Ares did not approve of this, and Hera, not wanting to go against her husband opted not to involve herself. So it was left to the other five goddesses to decide. They travelled to the Well of Souls, which is the place where the souls of all women murdered by man's hatred were placed. They gathered these souls and dropped them into Greece's lake. The souls were then mixed with clay and stone from the lake bed and thus the Amazons of Themyscira were born. Hippolyta was first to emerge and then her sister Antiope. The five goddesses decided that the Amazons should spread the message of peace, tolerance and equality. Hippolyta and Antiope were each given a Golden Girdle.
