In Ancient Greek mythology, Princess Andromeda was the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia of Aethiopia. As divine punishment for her mother's bragging, Andromeda was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to a sea monster. She was saved from death by Perseus, her future husband.
Andromeda was tasked by the Greek gods of Olympus to kill the three Gorgons who were operating out of Italy. As it turned out, killing was unnecessary; the Gorgons were defeated by mere humiliation and exile. Along her way home, Andromeda met a young man named Perseus, who caught her fancy. After she rescued him from a sea monster, they were married.
