Constellation inspiration

The book of constellations by Robin Kerrod –



Her name is the Latinized form of the Greek Ανδρομέδη (Andromédē). The etymology of the name is “to think of a man,” from ανδρός (andros) “man” combined with μήδομαι (mēdomai) “to think, to be mindful of.

Andromeda– (the chained lady, located between Perseus & Cassiopeia)

Daughter of King Cepheus & Queen Cassiopeia. (  of the Phoenician kingdom Ethiopia)

Her mother Cassiopeia bragged that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus and often seen accompanying Poseidon. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, brother to Zeus and God of the Sea, sent the sea monster Cetus to ravage the coast of Ethiopia including the kingdom of the vain Queen. The desperate King consulted the Oracle of Zeus, who announced that no respite would be found until the king sacrificed his virgin daughter Andromeda to the monster. She was chained naked to a rock on the coast of Jaffa.

Andromeda exposed to the sea-monster (1869) Paul Gustave Doré.

Perseus, returning from having slain the Gorgon Medusa, found Andromeda and slew Cetus. He set her free, and married her in spite of Andromeda having been previously promised to her uncle Phineus. At the wedding a quarrel took place between the rivals, and Phineus was turned to stone by the sight of the Gorgon’s head (Ovid, Metamorphoses v. 1).

Married Perseus,had eight children

Perseides, Perses, Alcaeus, Heleus, Mestor, Sthenelus, and Electryon, and one daughter, Gorgophone.

Main character in- My sisters keeper, Jodi Picoult
