Storyboard Text

  • Let's get the girdle so I can complete my 9th labour. The Amazons live here.
  • Hippolyte, queen of the Amazons, may I have your girdle in order to complete my 12 labours?
  • If you must.
  • Herakles has come to abduct our queen!
  • The Amazons were a tribe of warrior women. It is said that they lopped off their right breast in order to draw a bow and arrow.
  • I hope they do not realise I am Hera in disguise
  • We must get an army together and fight
  • Oh no! Poor Queen Hippolyte
  • Umm.... Who is this person? I don't think I have seen her before
  • Herakles was the son of Zeus and Alcmene. Hera who was Zeus' wife got very angry and sent a fit of maddness to Herakles. As the punishment for the crimes he commited while mad, Herakles had to perform 12 labours.
  • Oh dear! What is happening?
  • Herakles' 9th labour was to retrieve the Golden Girdle from Hippolyte, Queen of the Amazons. Hippolyte agreed to give it to him.
  • Sorry Hippolyte, it was nothing personal. Thanks for the girdle by the way
  • Hera- disguised as an Amazon- spread a rumour to all the other Amazons that Herakles was going to make off with their queen. 
  • Enraged, the Amazons charged down with their weapons and battle face on to where Herakles and Hippolyte were.
  • Herakles, thinking on his feet, killed Queen Hippolyte, took the girdle and left.
