Andromeda Picture

In Greek mythology, Andromeda was the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, King and Queen of the kingdom of Ethiopia.
Her mother claimed that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the daughters of the sea god Nereus. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, god of the sea, sent a sea monster (Cetus) to ravage the coast of Ethiopia. The king consulted the Oracle of Apollo, who said that the only solution to the problem was for the king to sacrifice his virgin daughter Andromeda to the monster.
She was chained to some rocks on the coast to await her fate when Perseus saw her and fell in love....but that is another story.
