Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, is pretty well known as Wonder Woman’s (princess Diana) mother. Diana’s father however, is a bit more complicated.

In Brian Azzarello’s New 52 run beginning in 2011 however, it was revealed that Zeus is Diana’s father, making her a demigod. Greg Rucka however removed that part from her origin in Rebirth (2016).
