Giants of Britain

The first name for Britain was Albion, and it was said to be inhabited by, you guessed it: giants. They were the offspring of 33 human sisters – who arrived there from the middle east – and some kind of spirits or demons who were found to be already there. During the time these giants and their descendants inhabited the island, according to the original legends, Jack, the giant killer, performed many exploits against them. He was probably Pict (a Celtic tribe, I believe).

The British were Trojans. They arrived on the island, led by Brutus, following the fall of Troy, circa 1600 BC. He and his men drove the giants into the mountains. But before the giants gave up the valleys entirely there was a famous wrestling match between their leader, or one notable among them, by the name of Gog, Gogmagog, or Goemagot, and a leader on Brutus’ side who may himself have been a giant.

Brutus had given the southwestern tip of Britain to another Trojan prince who fought along side him, by the name of Corineus, from whom Cornwall derives its name. Corineus enjoyed wrestling with giants, which activity culminated in his match against Gogmagog in which he threw the latter off a cliff into the sea.

Gogmagog and Corineus are commemorated by the internationalist bankers, the Lord Mayors of the City of London, even today. This fittingly makes Gogmagog and Corineus the chosen guardian angels of the Rothschild financial empire. (from The Giants of Ancient Albion & the Legendary Founding of Ancient Britain)
