The Amazons were a fierce tribe of warrior women who offered their superior fighting prowess to other nations. Over 20,000 years ago under Queen Myrina's rule, the Amazons were hired by the descendants of the Atlanteens to destroy a nest of Gorgons for them. Myrina had some Gorgons caught to continue their line within the Amazon nation and left behind a garrison Atlantis to collect payment. Unwilling to pay the Amazons, the Atlanteen rulers slew the garrison, a move that earned the Atlanteens, the Amazon nation's eternal hatred. Afraid of the Amazons, Atlantis' sorcerers council harnessed the power of the Axis Mundi inside the Omphalos to ensure that Atlantis stayed at the center of the world forever, but the energies proved to powerful, and their rash action furthered the sinking of Atlantis. Several years later the Amazons founded the city of Themiscyra on the Thermodon River in Anatolia (modern day turkey) and Hippplyta, the daughter of Amazonian queen Ortrera and Olympian war god Ares, was born.
