Antianeira was an Amazon who succeeded Penthesilea as Queen.
Antianeira became Queen of the Amazons after Penthesilea was killed by Achilles in the Trojan War. Unlike the Queens before her, she was exceptionally cruel towards men. She inflicted harsh punishments on the Gargareans, the neighboring tribe of men the amazons mated with once a year to keep each tribe reproductive. Later the Gargareans rebelled, taking the Amazon ships and making their way to Greece. Antianeira gathered other Amazon tribes and went to Greece to take their men back. The Athenians were waiting on the shores. After a long battle, she was killed.
