Many know of my enjoyment of ancient mythology to the point where the middle part of my name is a dedication to the Greek Goddess of the night. Nyx was one of the first Gods created in the universe and is the mother of numerous minor gods. She is one of the few goddesses that is feared by Zeus and is part of the cycle between day and night time.
Twentieth Century Fox was known for trying new versions of media that other companies had already laid claim to. One of these experiments was their take on the princess faerytales by creating Anastasia. The film was based on the historical events of the Russian royal family and the tragic event that claimed many of their lives.
In Ancient Egypt, the Sun God Ra was believed to rule in all parts of the created world; the sun, the sky, the earth, and the Underworld. He was commonly depicted with the head of a falcon. Some people mistake the images of Ra with Horus. You can tell them apart from their headdress. Ra is shown with a sun disk on its falcon head, while Horus is depicted with having a Pschent headdress, which is a double crown worn by rulers in ancient Egypt.
