Amazons have joyed in ruthless fight, in charging steeds, from the beginning. All the toil of men do they endure; and therefore evermore the spirit of the war-god thrills them through.
— Theano, Fall of Troy by Quintus Smyrnaeus

The Amazons are an all-female tribe of warriors that appear in many stories in Greek myths, often as foes for one of the Greek heroes. There are several theories as to what real-life groups inspired the Amazons, but most historians agree that the Amazons themselves are wholly fictitious.

The origin of the Amazons in myth is unclear, but Ares, the god of war, is usually associated with it, as the Amazons primarily worship Ares as their patron god. The culture of the Amazons is one of violence and war, which brought them into frequent conflict with the Greek city-states. In order to prevent their population from dying out, the Amazons either kidnapped men from their enemies or willingly procreated with an all-male tribe called the Gargareans.

Several Greek heroes found themselves facing the Amazons in battle during their journeys, including Heracles, Theseus, and Bellerophon. One of the queens of the Amazons, Penthesilea, appears as an enemy of Achilles in accounts of the Trojan War.

Battle vs. Landsknecht (by Mexican spider)

The battle starts with the Landsknecht walking through a forest. Then the Amazon warrior jumps out and fires her bow. It hits him in the thigh and he pulls it out. He takes out his Arquebus and waits for the Amazon to come back out. She comes back out with her Spear and shield and stabs at the Landsknecht. He fires the Arquebus but she blocks it with her shield but the shield gets knocked out of her hand. She stabs the arquebus with the spear and rips it in half. The Landsknecht takes out his Zweihander and slashes the Spear's tip off. The Amazon runs to go pick her shield up but the Landsknecht slashes it right as she picks it up. He takes out his Katzbalger and lunges at the Amazon. The Amazon takes out her broken Spear and knocks the Katzbalger out of his hand. He takes out his Kriegmesser and she takes out her Kopis. They each have a big fight till the Landsknecht slashes the Amazon's hand off. He then stabs her through the heart and whispers into her ear "Hundin" and then he rips the sword out.

Expert's Opinion

The Landsknecht won easily, having an enormous technological advantage as well as a minor physical advantage over his female foe.
