Fracassus

Father of Ferrgas, the giant, and son of Morgante.

Primus erat quidam Fracassus prole gigantis,
Cujus stirps olim Morganto 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).
