Albion the Giant

.

Fourth son of Neptune, sixth son of Osiris, and brother of Herculēs, his mother being Amphitrīta. Albion the Giant was put by his father in possession of the isle of Britain, where he speedily subdued the Samotheans, the first inhabitants. His brother Bergion ruled over Ireland and the Orkneys. Another of his brothers was Lestrigo, who subjected Italy. (See W. Harrison’s Introduction to Holinshed’s Chronicle.)
