Inogene

or Ignoge (3 syl.). Wife of Brute, the mythological king of Britain.

Thus Brute this realme unto his rule subdewd,
And raignëd long in great felicity.
Loved of his friends, and of his foes eschewd,
He left three sons, his famous progeny,
Born of fayre Inogene of Italy.

Spenser: Faërie Queene, ii. 10.
