Themyscira is the capital of Aretias...Aretias is an island not too far from Turkey and Greece...Aretias current name is Giresun.
Turkish Tour Guide stated Ares the god of war is father of all Greek Amazons, he is the father of Queen Hippolyta...he married her mother Otrera the high priestess of Artemis...that all Greek Amazons are eternally virginal unless they have been bless by the goddess Aphrodite to fall in love with a man.

OTRERA was a bride of Ares and the first of the Amazon queens. She founded the celebrated shrine of Artemis at Ephesos.
The mother of Hippolyte was the Amazon queen Otrera. It might have been Otrera who led the Amazons from Crete to Themiscyra. It is not known exactly where the Amazons came from but Crete seems likely. On Crete Otrera was most likely a priestess.
The myths relate that when Herakles arrived at the mouth of the Thermadon he was received warmly. No doubt the Amazon witnesses to the landing took glowing stories to their queen and Hippolyte came to his ship to greet Herakles. It seems that the Amazons were very impressed with Herakles as a father of beautiful offspring and Hippolyta sought to mate with him. Her hope was that she would become pregnant with a magnificant girl baby that reflected the fine form and nature of the hero. He was more concerned with acquiring the girdle of Hippolyte that Admeta, the daughter of king Eurystheus had demanded. When they got together they seemed to make a convenient arrangement where he would get her pregnant and she would give him the girdle. Similar arrangements were important to the Amazons because there were no men in their community.
Hera was not pleased with this activity. Most stories blame her hate for Herakles for what followed but she probably did not like what the Amazons were doing either. She seemed to feel that women should be a dedicated part of a family. Hera used her ability as a shape-shifter to come down to the Amazons disguised as one of their own and ran through the land, crying that Heracles meant to kidnap their queen. As a result the Amazons armed themselves and charged toward the ship to save Hippolyte.
Herakles was in a sweet embrace with the Queen when he heard the clamor of war. He rushed out of the tent to see what was happening. When he saw the hundreds of Amazons charging the ship he knew he had to act very fast. His first thought was that Hippolyte had set a trap for him. Without hesitation he ran his sword through her naked body and carried her outside. He threw the body in front of the charging Amazons because he knew this would stop them. They would wan to collect the body of their queen before they charged upon Herakles and his men. They might not know what to do without her leadership. Herakles collected his men and was able to ward off the attack. Hippolyta had achieved her goal of being impregnated by Herakles but she died before she could give birth as a result of a tragic misunderstanding.

It is very good...I want to share with you Ares the god of war is Queen Hippolyta's Father in the Greek Mythology...it is an interesting story in how they had met...Queen Hippolyta's mother Otrera. Otrera was a high priestess of Artemis, she was dancing in the nude in front of the altar...when Ares the god of war pretended to be a worshiper of Artemis...they married immediately. Ares being the Greek god and Greek father in attitude gives Queen Hippolyta a magic belt of physical strength, youth and beauty...Hercules, Ares' half brother, is ordered by the king to take it from her. She agrees to give it to him, because of his masculine charms..Hera the queen of the gods stirs up trouble causing Hercules and his men to believe the Amazon is planning to trap them in bondage and slavery. The Amazons hear from Queen Hippolyta the same...they battle...two versions concerning Queen Hippolyta with Hercules...he kills her or he marries her this is all in the Greek Mythology.
In Greek mythology, Otrera (Greek: Οτρηρη Otrērē) was a Queen of the Amazons; the daughter of Eurus (the east wind), consort of Ares and mother of Hippolyta, Antiope, Melanippe, and Penthesilea.
Otrera is sometimes considered the mythological founder of the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus,which was closely connected with Amazons. She is also sometimes considered the founder of the Amazon nation, though many myths place the first Amazons much earlier.

HOLA ! I really did enjoy this expanded look at the origin of Wonder Woman, it all fits so nicely into what has been previously revealed to us. The addditional details and close following to Dr. Marston's story made me feel as if I was there. And you have set up Wotan and other adversaries to oppose Diana in "Man's World". Also thrilled that you bring in the Robot Plane, and the TRADITIONAL Wonder Woman costume. I am looking forward to more about the Amazing Amazon.
