Golden Age Wonder Woman
This issue was published in 1946.
That opening pretty much says it all.
They have plane trouble and land, only to find themselves under attack by armored knights.
One of the knights gets Wonder Woman on the back of the head with a mace. With her unconscious, Steve surrenders so they won't kill her. When she comes to, they talk it over in the dungeon:
And they've seen no reason to change their ways in the past thousand years. Hey, why not?
Wonder Woman's bracelets were chained while she was unconscious, so she can't bust them out. Guards come for Steve, only they keep calling him "Hubert". He objects; who wouldn't object to being called "Hubert"?
They're about to behead him in the public square when some guys in hose and feathered caps rescue him and take him off to
Robin of Locksley fills him in on the story till now.

Wonder Woman's still in the dungeon:

Hubert escapes, saying he'll come back for the fair maids, but before he gets back, the women are taken to interrogation.
At last, Wonder Woman figures out what's going on:

Well, that was a bloodless revolution. "Splendid idea - I'll do it!"
