"The youngest was a girl researchers estimated was 12 or 13."

Maybe her name really was Diana! ;)

Well, of course!

The title of my post was intended to be tongue-in-cheek :)

Sorry to rain on your parade, but the short answer, as you can guess, is no. Wonder Woman (or Diana Prince) is fictional character. This is probably pretty obvious. ;)

The real Amazons likely originated in Asia Minor (the upper Near-East/Caucasus region or its vicinity), but other variant tales/lore and alternate mythology and legend indicate they are found elsewhere as well.

See this links for further reference. Although they are not definitive, they do clarify key points and it does point to the common origins of the mythical female warrior tribes.
