 Al’bion.Albion the Giant. 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Son of the king of this island when Oberon held his court in what we call Kensington Gardens. He was stolen by the elfin Milkah, and brought up in fairyland. When nineteen years of age, he fell in love with Kenna, daughter of King O’beron, but was driven from the empire by the indignant monarch. Albion invaded the territory, but was slain in the battle. When Kenna knew this, she poured the juice of moly over the dead body, and it changed into a snow-drop.—T. Tickell.   1
