The rebellious queen of Atlantis, Atlanna, fell in love with a human man and eventually gave birth to a son—a boy who would grow up to be Aquaman.
Atlanna is a member of the Royal House of Atlantis, the undersea kingdom which would later famously be ruled by her son Arthur, the superhero known as Aquaman. As a young princess, she was prone to adventuring and wandering dangerously close to the ocean's surface. One night, while swimming close to land, she encountered a terrible storm and found a damaged lifeboat carrying a surface dwelling human named Tom Curry. The man’s ship had capsized, thus throwing him overboard to his likely demise. Atlanna saved Curry and nursed him back to health, and the two would later fall in love and eventually marry. She would have his child, a boy the couple named Arthur.
