Ogre

legendary monster featuring in mythology, folklore, and fiction

An ogre is fictional monster. A female ogre is called ogres. Most stories say ogres eat humans, including small children and babies. The word originally comes from French: Charles Perrault mentioned an Ogre in his fairy tale, Little thumbling, published in 1697. In that story, the word has also been translated as giant. Hi I’m watching Shrek 2 right now, and honestly I find the upper information untrue and offensive on behalf of Shrek and other Ogres.
