The all-female Wakanda army featured in Black Panther are actually partially based off a real 19th century female army from Africa called the Ahosi.

Their actual names are the Ahosi, the Meno or the N’nonmiton. The Dahomey warriors is the name that was dubbed by European traders cause they reminded them of the Greek amazons of myth.
