Loegria or Loʹgres

.

England is so called by Geoffrey of Monmouth, from Logrine, eldest son of the mythical King Brute.

“His [Brute’s] three sons divide the land by consent; Locrine had the middle part, Loëgra …”—Milton: History of England, bk. i.


“Thus Cambria to her right, what would herself restore,

And rather than to lose Loegria, looks for more.”


Drayton: Polyolbion, iv.


“Il est ecrit quʹil est une heure

Ou tont le royaume de Logres,

Qui jadis fut la terre es ogres,

Sera detruit par cette lance.”


Chretien de Troyes.
