Father, for my birthday I want Hippolyte's golden belt, the on that Ares gave her.
Do you think Herakles could fetch it for me?
You must get the golden belt that Hippolyte owns to me so I can give it to my daughter for her 18th birthday.
I come in peace, to retrieve the golden belt of yours to give as a gift to the Princess Admete.
Here, you may have it as a token of my respect and trust.
One day, the daughter of King Eurytheus, Princess Ademete asked her father to get Hercules to get the golden belt from Hippolyte. Eurytheus smiles broadly.
Herakles doesn't come here in peace, he has come to carry off your queen!
King Eurythesus then goes to Herakles and tells him that he must get the golden belt from Hippolyte to give to Ademete and if he doesn't succeed, he's going get to rid of him.
Hercules accepted the task at hand and with some Greek warriors, he set off to find Queen Hippolyte. Once he found her, he told Hippolyte that he came in peace to retrieve the belt as a gift to the Princess. Hippolyte, impressed by the hero, offered the belt to him as a symbol of her trust and respect.
Hera, who decided to intervene, disguised herslf as an Amazon and spread a rumour that Herakles wanted to carry off their queen and after hearing this, a band of Amazons rode out to attack Herakles and his men.
Herakles, convinced that Hippolyte had played him false, murdered her. The Greeks also managed to sail away safely. However, they were in a sombre mood as Hippolyte had been unjustly killed.
In the end, Herakles, delivered the golden belt to the overjoyed Ademete, but did not reveal any of the tragic events that had happened.
