Hippolyte

(hĭpŏl`ĭtē), in Greek mythology, an Amazon queen. One of the 12 labors of Hercules was to take the golden girdle of Ares from her. To accomplish his task Hercules captured Hippolyte and then ransomed her for the girdle, although some said that he killed her for it. According to one legend, after Theseus abducted her sister Antiope, Hippolyte led a vengeful army to Athens but was defeated and died of grief. She is sometimes confused with Antiope and said to be the mother of Hippolytus.
