Theseus returns home after slaying the Minotaur while also looking for a wife
Theseus and Pirithous set off to the Amazons so that Theseus can woo the Queen Hippolyta
Hippolyta and the Amazonian women greeted them with a delicious feast and a warm welcome
Queen Hippolyta was flattered by Theseus' proposal and strongly considered, but leaving her Amazonian sisterhood was a no-go, which hurt Theseus' feelings and left him pondering
Pirithous felt bad that Theseus had been rejected by Queen Hippolyta so he persuaded and plotted the kidnapping of the Amazonian Queen.
After partying for several days with the Amazonian women, it was time to spring into action! Theseus crept in to Hippolyta's tent and carried her away while she slept. The two men set sail for Athens thinking their plan worked.
