Hello!

The Princess Andromeda is the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia. (who are are represented by nearby constellations) She is associated with the myth about Perseus.
Because of her mother's insult to the Sea God Poseidon, Andromeda was chained to a rock, to be sacrificed to the sea monster Cetus. Perseus happened to fly by, fell in love with her, and rescued her from the monster.
The constellation of Andromeda contains one of the most popular deepsky objects M31, 'the Andromeda Galaxy'.
