Tours

Geoffrey of Monmouth says: “In the party of Brutus was one Turones, his nephew, inferior to none in courage and strength, from whom Tours derived its name, being the place of his sepulture.” Of course, this fable is wholly worthless historically. Tours is the city of the Turones, a people of Gallia Lugdunensis.
