More Information about Andromeda
Andromeda's origins dates back to The Classical World Tradition and the particular stars of Andromeda have been seen as a woman in more Ancient times in Babylonia. In The Classical World Andromeda was also known as Persea, The Wife of Perseus and Cepheis, The Daughter of Cepheus. In The Main Classical World Tradition, Andromeda is the daughter of The Queen of Ethiopia, Cassiopeia. Queen Cassiopeia would boast about Andromeda as her most fair daughter who was even more beauteous than the Sea Nymphs known as The Nereids. This peeved The god of The Sea, Storms and Horses Poseidon who then commanded The Sea Monster Cetus to attack Ethiopia. The Father of Andromeda, Cepheus, went forth to Omniscience Oracle of Ammon for the answer of what he must do to save his Kingdom, Ethiopia. The Oracle of Ammon told Cepheus that he must sacrifice his daughter, Andromeda, in order to save his kingdom. Hearing this, Cepheus hastily went and chained Andromeda next to the sea in order to die at the will of Poseidon. She seemed to be doomed until The Hero Perseus rescued her from her sealed fate. He did this by using Medusa severed head to turn the monster Cetus to stone. In other version Perseus used a diamond sword to slice and kill Cetus. Either way, after this event Perseus and Andromeda went forth and married one another and had 9 offspring. When Andromeda passed away, Athena placed her in the night sky to honor her where she lay to this day.
