Lars

The overking of the ancient Etruscans, like the Welsh “pendragon.” A satrap, or under-king, was a lucumo. Thus the king of Prussia is the German lars, and the king of Bavaria is a lucumo.

There be thirty chosen prophets,
The wisest of the land,
Who always by Lars Porsena,
Both morn and evening stand.

Macauldy: Lays of Ancient Rome, (Horatius, ix.)
