Alʹgarsife (3 syl.)

.

Son of Cambuscan, and brother of Camʹbalo, who “won Theodʹora to wife.” It was in the “Squire’s Tale,” by Chaucer, but was never finished. (See Canace.)

Call him up that left half told

The story of Cambuscan bold,

Of Camball, and of Algarsife,

And who had Canace to wife.”


Milton: Il Penseroso.
