At one time in Amazon history, there were two queens ruling over a single united Amazon tribe. They split into different nations after the conquest of Herakles and Queen Hippolyta and her tribe moved to the Island of Themyscira while the other tribe ruled by Queen Antiope wandered throughout Europe and the Middle East for a while but eventually founded a new city in Egypt called Bana-Migdhall.
The Bana tribe gleaned religious elements from all their travels and created a belief structure in goddesses separate from the Olympians who were worshipped by the Themyscirans.
The city of Bana-Mighdall was destroyed through the collateral damage caused when Wonder Woman, a princess of the Themyscirans, battled her enemy Cheetah. Somehow Wonder Woman and Cheetah broke through the protective charms cast on the city by one of the new goddesses. Naturally, the Bana then wanted to take over the Island of Themyscira, revealed to them by the witch, Circe. Circe made a deal with the Bana-Mighdall that the island and immortality would be theirs if they could defeat the Themyscirans. However with all of the Amazons now on the Island, Circe made a play and teleported it to a demon world. The two tribes worked together to get free from Circe's spell and once the Island was returned to its proper place, the Bana were offered a small section of it for their own.
Eventually in the Bana's history, the tribe of the Bana is further split when some of them choose to live among the original Themyscirans. The outcast sect of the Bana is led by the warrior Karna. They oppose not only men but all Amazons who disagree with them.
