Gog and Magog

British - The last survivors of a giant race. These giants were captured by Brut and Corineus and kept as porters in the royal palace. In an alternative story they were the giant Gogmagog who Corineus threw to his death from a cliff. Another story describes them as races which were imprisoned behind a range of mountains by Alexander the Great who had built a huge metal gate to keep them from escaping. Others relate how they attacked King Arthur but he defeated them with the help of Gargantua who wielded a sixty-foot club. In apocalyptic writings, Gog and Magog are the Devil's assistants. Called Gog and Magog, Gogmagog, Gogmagog, Goemagot, Goemot, Gourmaillon, Magog or Magog.
