A Danish Giant that features in the legend of Sir Guy of Warwick, during the reign of the Saxon King, King Athelsan. Sir Guy travelled to the Holy Land but on his way back he was shocked to see that Danish invaders had overrun his town. To settle this dispute he challenged the Danish leader to single handed combat. Whoever won the fight would win both the town and the Saxon and Danish armies. The leader of the Danes was a Giant named Colbrande. After and intense fight, Colbrande was defeated and Sir Guy won back his land and a great army.
