Alcippe was the Queen of the Amazons of Themyscira for a thousand years in the time of Ancient Greece before the reign of Hippolyta, her daughter and heir to the throne. She was killed to treason by Ambassador Charax of Sparta while drinking poisoned wine by exigency of the witch Hecate, that ravaged with her undead creatures the city of King Kleomenes in exchange of her to leave Sparta. This led to a war between the Amazons and the Spartans, and later to the prohibition by Hippolyta of any man to set foot on Paradise Island again.[1]

At some point she founded the tribe of the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall, among whom she was known as Antiope, along with her sister Atalanta.[2]
