Bragadino

Bragadino (BRAG-a-dino) Bragadino is not a Greek name, it seems, in fact, to be an Italian sir-name. The most famous Bragadino was a general for the Venetians on Cyprus (Like Othello) in 1570. He and the Pasha Mustafa who was attempting to take Cyprus had a negation/dinner in which Bragadino refused to relent to certain demands and thereby the Pasha arrested him and his train and put them to death.

Bragadins is a Spanish wooer of Elimine. Count Hermes berates him, and threatens him, and eventual Bragadino accepts defeat in his suit to Elimine.
