The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 162

Hard by them is another island called Colonach, and the king of that country has as many wives as he likes, and he lies only but one night with each of them, and he has a vast number of children. And he has four hundred tame elephants, on which he puts a castle of wood when he goes to battle; and the like of that is usual in those countries.
