The nine choirs of angels are classed as follow, with the name of the chief of each, according to ancient legend:

Cherubim
 Jophiel
 |
 Dominions
 Zadchiel
 |
 Principalities
 Camiel
 
Seraphim
 Uriel
 |
 Virtues
 Haniel
 |
 Archangels
 Michael
 
Thrones
 Zaphkiel
 |
 Powers
 Raphael
 |
 Angels
 Gabriel
 

According to A. Welby Pugin's "Glossary of Architectural Ornament and Costume," and other authorities, we learn the mediæval conception of these beings.
