Loegria

or Logres. England is so called by Geoffrey of Monmouth, from Logrine, eldest son of the mythical King Brute.

“His [Brute's] three sons divide the land by consent; Locrine had the middle part, Loëgra ...” —Milton: History of England, bk. i.

Thus Cambria to her right, what would herself restore,
And rather than to lose Loegria, looks for more.

Drayton: Polyolbion, iv.

Il est ecrit qu'il est une heure
Ou tout le royaume de Logres,
Qui jadis fut la terre es ogres,
Sera detruit par cette lance.

Chretien de Troyes.
