 Android.Androni’ca (in Orlando Furioso). 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Daughter of Cepheus (2 syl.) and Cassiopeia. Her mother boasted that the beauty of Andromda surpassed that of the Nereids; so the Nereids induced Neptune to send a sea-monster on the country, and an oracle declared that Andromeda must be given up to it. She was accordingly chained to a rock, but was delivered by Perseus (2 syl.). After death she was placed among the stars. (See ANGELICA..)   1
