Brigians

.

The Castilians; so called from one of their ancient kings, named Brix or Brigus, said by monkish fabulists to be the grandson of Noah.

Edward and Pedro, emulous of fame …

Throʹ the flerce Brigians hewed their bloody way,

Till in a cold embrace the striplings lay.”


Camoens: Lusiad, v.
