Overview

The sentence "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" can be translated by "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming".[1]

History

In a possible future of Conan, the sentence "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Ctulhu R'lyeh wgah-ngal fhtaga!" was chanted by the men of sea when they called for their god Dagon.[2]

Notes

  • This sentence in "R'lyehian" (sometimes called "Cthuvian", though no name was used to name that language in-universe so far), was created by H. P. Lovecraft in his short story "The Call of Cthulhu", first published in Weird Tales (June, 1928).
  • So far, the full sentence "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" has never been mentioned in Marvel Comics in its original spelling.
