While this and the other "Amazoness" Monsters were based on the Greek Amazons, this card in particular may also be based on Amanirenas, or "The One-Eyed Kandake". Both are warrior queens who have lost an eye in battle. Both of them are depicted using a sword(s) as their weapons. Amanirenas was said to have become more courageous when she lost her eye, and defeated Rome when it tried to annex Kush. This may have been the inspiration for "Amazoness Queen's" effect.
