Michaelis, <italic> Chur-und Furstlichen Hauser in Deutschland <end italic> (Lemgo, 1759, 1760, 1785), i. 255.]-- first mention in human speech of the place now called Brandenburg: Bor or "Burg of the Brenns" (if there ever was any TRIBE of Brenns,--BRENNUS, there as elsewhere, being name for KING or Leader); "Burg of the Woods," say others,--who as little know.
