Pinabello

or Pinabel (in Orlando Furioso). Son of Anselmo, King of Maganza. Marphisa, having over-thrown him, and taken the steed of his dame, Pinabello, at her instigation, decreed that nothing would wipe out the disgrace except a thousand dames and a thousand warriors unhorsed, and spoiled of their arms, steed, and vest. He was slain by Bradamant.
