Fracassus

.

Father of Ferrăgus, the giant, and son of Morgantē.

“Primus erat quidam Fracassus prole gigantis,

Cujus stirps olim Morgan to venit ab illo,

Qui bacchioconem campanæ ferre solebat,

Cum quo mille hominum colpos fracasset in uno.”


Merlin Cocaius (i.e. Théophile Folengo): Histoire Macaronique (1606).
