London

Description

Brutus, when he had chosen a dwelling place for himself in Britannia or Anglia, at once founded Trinovantum by the banks of the River Tamensis, a very fortified city and indeed quite fruitful in resources, to recall the memory of ancient Troy. They say that this Brutus begat three sons, namely Locrinus, Albanetus, and Camber. When they first divided up the island among themselves, the middle part fell to Locrinus, who was the eldest, which was afterwards named Locria, in which the city of London is said to exist to this day, a city most greatly renowned for merchants and traders, in which to this day it is reported, for the most part, that the kings, chiefs, and popular assembly of Anglia gather along with the merchants.
