The Brut, a history of Britain, beginning with the settlement of the island by Brutus, was produced in several languages over several centuries. Strictly speaking, Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae is a Brut, as is Caxton's Chronicles of England. Other notable texts in between are Wace's Roman de Brut, Lawman's Brut, The Anglo-Norman Prose Brut, and the Middle English Prose Brut. Even Sir Gawain and the Green Knight has occasionally been referred to as a Brut because of the reference to Brutus and the history of Britain in its introduction.
