 Angelic Hymn.Angelica’s Draught, 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Daughter of Gal’aphron, king of Cathay, the capital of which was Albrac’ca. She was sent to sow discord among the Christians. Charlemagne sent her to the Duke of Bavaria, but she made her escape from the duke’s castle. Being captured in her flight, she was bound to a rock, and exposed to sea-monsters. Rogro delivered her, but she escaped out of his hands by a magic ring. Orlando greatly loved her, but she married Medo’ro, a young Moor, and returned to India, where Medo’ro succeeded to the crown in right of his wife. (Orlando Furioso.) (See ANDROMEDA)   1
