In Greek mythology, Andromeda was a young woman who was the daughter of Cassiopeia and King Cepheus. Andromeda's mother claimed that they were more beautiful than the sea nymphs, the Nereids.
The Nereids complained to the sea god Poseidon. Poseidon threatened to send a flood and a sea monster to destroy the kingdom. The king was advised to sacrifice his daughter.
Andromeda was chained to a sea-cliff to be eaten by the sea monster.
