Queen Hippolyta was the monarch of Amazonia, and she was the mother of the only child born among the Amazons: Princess Diana.

The ambitious Captain Stephen Trevor of the British Royal Air Marines was the sole survivor of the crew when an anarchist bomb ignited the gas cells of the airship H.M.S. Disraeli, having swum almost without strength to the beaches of a mysterious island inhabited solely by women: Amazonia.

He deceived the queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta, by making himself a good man and gaining their confidence so that he could know their secrets. After he was rescued, he informed the government of his discovery. With the desire to conquer the island, the British Crown sent a squadron of both air and sea ships. The Amazons fought bravely, but were overtaken by the British military superiority and were almost all killed, including Hippolyta, and the rest of them were enslaved and kept on the island, which now belonged to the British Empire.

Diana was about three at the moment, and she was snatched away from Amazonia by the soldiers of the Royal Air Marines squadron captained by Captain Trevor.[1]
