Tanaquil is the Latinised version of Thanchvil--an Etruscan Goddess. It was also the name of the wife of the fifth king of Rome (Tarquinius), who foresaw her husband's ascension. Edmund Spencer used this name for his Faerie Queene in The Faerie Queene. The character was a representation of Queen Elizabeth I of England, and The Faerie Queene is one of the longest poems in the world.
