One of the Giants in the genealogy of the French conqueror Charlemagne. According to the Babylonian Priest, Borosus (3rd Century BC), Galathea was born from the hero Hercules Libyus and the Giantess Celtes. Hercules Libyus travelled to Italy to destroy the race of Giants. It is there that he met with Celtes. The author Jean Le Maire de Belges (1473 1524), wrote a genealogy that included Galathea among many Giants who were apart of the ancestry of Charlemagne.
