A great and terrible Danish giant. So great was he of stature that no horse could bear him, nor could any man make a cart wherein to carry him. He was armed with black armor, and carried a great dart in his hand; slung around his body were swords and battle-axes more than two hundred in number. He was killed by the medieval hero Guy of Warwick, who cut off the giant's head, whereupon the Danes withdrew to their own country.
