BRUTE BRUT, Or BRUTUS THE TROJAN, a legendary British character, who, according to Geoffrey of Monmouth and other was the eponymous hero of Britain. He was reputed to be grandson of Aeneas, and the legend was that he was banished from Italy and made his way to Britain, where he founded New Troy (London). The name is an obvious confusion between Bry t (a Briton) and the classical name Brutus. For the romance literature of the subject see WACE ; and BARBOUR.
