▪ king of Bernicia
died 559

      first recorded king of Bernicia (from 547), soon after the foundation of the kingdom of Bernicia by the Angles in the British Isles. He supposedly built the fortress of Bebbanburh, the modern Bamborough; and after his death his kingdom, which did not extend south of the River Tees, reportedly passed to his sons.

modern Turkish  Kaz Daği,  

      mountain range in northwestern Asia Minor (now Turkey), near the site of ancient Troy. A classic shrine, Ida was where Paris passed judgment on the rival goddesses and was the scene of the rape of Ganymede. From its highest peak, about 5,800 feet (1,800 m), the gods are said to have witnessed the Trojan War.

      Ida (Ide, Ídhi, or Psiloriti) is also the classical name of the highest mountain (8,058 feet [2,456 m]) of Crete, site of another classic shrine and the cave where Zeus was said to have been reared.
