Who are the seven princes of Hell? I think I know them but I am not 100%. I believe they are Belial, Satan, Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Laviathan, Mammon, Belphegor, Lucifer. Could someone tell me if I am right and if so what hell are they in charge of please. If I am wrong could you tell me with their roles please.
