Abstract: Some relationships between string theories and elevendimensional supergravity are discussed and reviewed. We see how some relationships can be derived from others. The cases of N = 2 supersymmetry in nine dimensions and N = 4 supersymmetry in four dimensions are discussed in some detail. The latter case leads to consideration of quotients of a K3 surface times a torus and to a possible peculiar relationship between elevendimensional supergravity and the heterotic strings in ten dimensions.
