Trivia[ | ]

  • Beelzebub, also known by "Lord of the Flies" and many other names, is known as one of the 7 princes of hell. Beelzebub is also another name for the devil.
  • In modern Catholic tradition, Beelzebub is regarded as one of the 7 princes of Hell; however, the origins of the name Beelzebub actually dates back to an early Jewish insult for worshippers of a Canaanite Deity Ba'al 'Lord', or Ba'al-Zvul 'Lord of the manor/dwelling', calling him Ba'al-Zvuv, 'Lord of the flies'.
    • The achievement 'Lord of the Flies' is a reference to this.
