CAMBER ap Brutus
CAMBER ap Brutus. (Camber-S3)(Cymryw)(Kamber-S3). King of Cambria & Cornwall.
Son of BRUTUS ap Sylvius, King in Britain.
Camber, also Kamber, was the legendary first king of Cambria, according to the Geoffrey of Monmouth in the first part of his influential 12th-century pseudohistory Historia Regum Britanniae. According to Geoffrey, Cambria, the classical name for Wales, was named for him. (S3).
After the death of his father the kingdom was divided between he and his two brothers Locrinus and Albanactus.
He was given Cambira. His younger brother Albanactus got Alba (the territory corresponding to modern Scotland; from Welsh Yr Alban) and his older brother Locrinus received Logres (corresponding to England; from Welsh Lloegr) and the title of King of the Britons. (S3).
Camber received the region which is on the further bank of the River Severn, the part which is now known as Wales but which was for a long time after his death called Kambria from his name. As a result the people of country still call themselves Kambri today in the Welsh tongue. Camber Duke of Cambria and Cornwall, whence Cambria.
These three reigned in peace and harmony for a long time.
When Albanactus was murdered by Humber, King of the Huns, Camber joined Locrinus in attacking and defeating him. (S3).
Eventually, Humber, the King of the Huns, landed in Albany. He met Albanactus in battle, killed him and forced the people of his country to flee to Locrinus. As soon as Locrinus heard the news, he persuaded his brother Kamber to join him in an alliance. Locrinus called up all the young men of his country and went out to meet the King of the Huns somewhere near the river which is now called the Humber. When the two forces made contact, Locrinus forced Humber to flee. Humber retreated as far as the river and was then drowned beneath its waters, giving his name to the stream. Once he had gained victory, Locrinus distributed the spoils of the enemy among his allies, keeping back nothing for himself except the gold and silver which he found on board their ships.
