Angelica

.

Daughter of Galʹaphron, king of Cathay, the capital of which was Albracʹca. She was sent to sow discord among the Christians. Charlemagne sent her to the Duke of Bavaria, but she made her escape from the duke’s castle. Being captured in her flight, she was bound to a rock, and exposed to sea-monsters. Rogēro delivered her, but she escaped out of his hands by a magic ring. Orlando greatly loved her, but she married Medoʹro, a young Moor, and returned to India, where Medoʹro succeeded to the crown in right of his wife. (Orlando Furioso.) (See Andromeda)
