The goddess Aphrodite is one of the Gods of Olympus and the patroness of the Amazons of Amazonia.

Three thousand years ago, the man-god Hercules assembled a contingent of Greek soldiers and attacked Amazonia to take the Queen Hippolyta's Golden Girdle, precious gift given to her by the goddess, imprisoning and enslaving the Amazons of the island. On the front wall of the Temple of Aphrodite, the men wrote the Greek word πόρνη (pórnē, meaning "prostitute").

Hippolyta, begging Aphrodite, defeated Hercules and freed her sisters, leading them on the counterattack that massacred the men of Hercules and freed the Island of Amazonia from the male yoke. After that, Hippolyta asked the sweet goddess to let the Amazons retire forever from the Man's World, with an impenetrable veil around the island and prosper in peace.

The set of laws defined by the Amazons was named Aphrodite's Law in honor of her. The Aphrodite's Law governs the lives of women of Amazonia, especially through love.[1]
