    • Iron Mask
      Amazon women warriors were supposed to be perfect with bows and arrows. One of the reasons was that theyd cut off the breast by the arm theyd pull the bow string back with. It was supposed to make markmenship better.

      According to Greek myth, "Amazon" literally means "without a breast". Presumably it was believed that a woman's near breast (the breast next to the string arm) would actually "get in the way" of the action of the bowstring being pulled back and released, and certainly one can imagine it to be so. (Look up images "greek archer statue" and see how the archer is almost fully sideways to the direction of the string/arrow pull.) It is certainly not beyond belief that such a tribe did exist, a tribe traditionally fielding women archers, a tribe that ritually excised one breast in an attempt to enhance the bowmanship of said archers.

      However, as far as I know nothing in the legend suggests women of unusual height.
  • In the legends, Amazons removed one breast, so that they shoot bows better. I do not recall them being giants in the legends.

      I always hear tall girls called Amazon women for some reason.
