I am the queen of the Amazons, you idiot. I wear the royal belt. With the strength it gives me, I will avenge the Amazons you killed today.

Hylla Ramírez-Arellano to Orion in The Blood of Olympus

Queen Hippolyta's Belt is a golden waist belt that signifies Amazonian queenship and grants its wearer enhanced strength, as well as superior combat skills. It was formerly worn by Hippolyta, and is now in Hylla Ramírez-Arellano's possession, the current queen of the Amazons.

History

Hercules' Ninth Labor

Heracles

Hercules, the hero who stole Queen Hippolyta's belt

As part of his twelve labors, the hero Hercules was ordered to retrieve Hippolyta's belt for King Eurystheus' daughter, Admete. Hercules was openly welcomed by Hippolyta, who was very willing to hand her belt over to him. However, Hera appeared to the Amazons as one of their own, crying out that Hercules was going to kidnap their queen. The Amazons then charged towards Hercules' ship, and believing that Hippolyta had betrayed him, Hercules killed the Amazon queen and promptly took her belt, before escaping from the enraged Amazons.
