Brut, or Brutus, of date unknown. The grandson or great-grandson of AEneas, who, after many adventures, came to the land now called England, and after warring with and overcoming a race of giants who lived there, gave the land his own name (Britain), and founded the city of New Troy, afterwards called London. At least, so say Geoffrey of Monmouth and other equally veracious historians.
