A being of immense size from who lived many centuries ago. His description comes form the author Francois Rabelais (ca 1494 ca 1553) in his works Pantagruel (1532) and Gargantua (1534). He was created from Great Panta which means ‘All’ and he took part of his name from the Arabic word ‘gruel’ meaning ‘thirst’ as he was born at a time of a great drought. His cradle was so big that the masts of ships were used to create it. However when he matured he broke out of his cradle and grew up to become omniscient. Pantagruel became the King of Dipsodes and went on a quest travelling to Utopia to find the ‘Oracle of the Holy Bottle’.
