Ruling "from ... to ..."

Hi,

I would like to say

Croesus, ruling from 560 BC to 546 BC, was ...

in Latin.

How would you construct this phrase? It is especially the "from ... to" bit which I am not sure how to translate (I am not even sure my English is correct: would you say "from ... through" instead?).

Also, would you use "annus" in this case and how?

Thanks. :D ...

A friend is starting some video game group, and asked me to translate some of his name ideas into latin. Unfortunately I remember almost nothing from my couple years of latin. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out putting these few things into latin:

Knights of the Abyss
Bringers of Darkness
Destroyers of Light
Under the Veil of Night

Happy sounding stuff huh? :P Thanks ...

HELP please... silly translation problem

Okay, so, for Thanksgiving, we're supposed to write a list of things we're grateful for. The form which my teacher (through a substitute teacher) gave us was,

"Gratis ago" + dative

But she wants us to use a participle in each sentence. (?!) The example she gave us was,

"I am grateful for having friends."

I am confused about multiple things.

A, I don't understand why this is a participle and not a gerund, as ...
