Guendolœʹna

,

daughter of Corinʹeus and wife of Locrin, son of Brute, the legendary king of Britain. She was divorced, and Locrin married Estrildis, by whom he already had a daughter named Sabriʹna. Guendolœʹna, greatly indignant, got together a large army, and near the river Stour a battle was fought, in which Locrin was slain. Guendolœʹna now assumed the government, and one of her first acts was to throw both Estrildis and Sabriʹna into the river Severn. (Geoffrey. Brit. Hist., ii. chaps. 4, 5.)
