The Ancient Greek Amazons were a special breed of women who were built for war. They were said to be created by the Otera who was also their queen. Otera taught herself how to fight and be a warrior at a young age to escape the trouble of her family life as a young girl. She soon started recruiting women and training them to become fighters. They travelled from village to village in Greece and freed women from their oppressive men whether husbands or fathers.
