Who was Andromeda?
In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of the Ethiopian king Cepehus and his wife Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia's hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon sends a sea monster, Cetus, to ravage Ethiopia as divine punishment. Andromeda is stripped and chained naked to a rock as a sacrifice to the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus.
