Trinovantum is the name given to London in earliest times.
The account given in the Chronicles of the Early Britons do not give any further genealogical descent from Ferrex and Porrex. It mentions an unspecified period of strife and civil war, as five rival kings fought for supremacy. Unfortunately, the lineal royal descent for this period is untraceable. There is no evidence at all of a link between Cloten and Ferrex. However, I provide this link in order to tell the story from Brutus and his descent through Locrinus. Undoubtedly King Cloten is descended from Locrinus in some fashion, thus I make this connection to bridge the unknown gap, merely for the continuity of these ancient uncertain stories (and perhaps legendary), but without intention to establish any true genealogical relationship.

- NN is the Latin abbreviation for "nomen nescion" or "non nominandus" meaning "name is not known" which is a standard across Europe for genealogy, newspaper reports and court affairs. This is more language neutral and globally acceptable than using the English terms "Miss", "son" or "daughter" in place of an unknown given name. It is also preferable than leaving the given name blank, as it clearly indicates the name is missing.
