The Ancient Ones were a group of (or many) ancient beings who were more or less active on Earth.
For unrevealed motives, the Ancient Ones (allegedly the only beings powerful enough to do so) entombed the evil Dark Angels, Atyah and her sister, going through great trouble to produce the Jewelled Sword of Tem which maintained them dormant in ice. Their resting place became known as the Tomb of the Dark Angels, in the Valley of Eternal Darkness, in Aesgaard.
- The Ancient Ones were created by H. P. Lovecraft and E. Hoffmann Price in "Through the Gates of the Silver Key" (July, 1934).
- "Ancient One(s)" is also a term used to refer to elders among human groups, for the collective name of those who held the title of Ancient One, such as Yao, master of Doctor Strange. In an unidentified reality, the Consquitadores were known as such as well by the Natives in the Modern Age.
