Malambruʹno

.

The giant, first cousin of Queen Magunʹcia, of Candayʹa, who enchanted Antonomasʹia and her husband, and shut them up in the tomb of the deceased queen. The infanta he transformed into a monkey of brass, and the knight into a crocodile. Don Quixote achieved their disenchantment by mounting the wooden horse called Clavileʹno. (Cervantes: Don Quixote, part ii. book iii. chap. xlv.)
