Amytis was either born to Cyaxares and his wife, or to Cyaxares's son, Astyages, and daughter-in-law, Aryenis. In either case it is believed she was conceived out of wedlock.

Amytis married Nebuchadnezzar to formalize the alliance between the Babylonian and Median dynasties.

Amytis' homesickness for the forested mountains of the Median Empire led to the construction of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, as Nebuchadnezzar attempted to please her by planting the trees and plants of her homeland. Recent evidence suggests that the garden was more likely built by an Assyrian King Sennacherib in Nineveh.
