In the late 19th century, the English oak tree, quercus robur (Latin, quercus for “oak” and robur “strength, hard timber”) gave its name to the villain in a Jules Verne novel, Robur the Conqueror, and to a tea company in Melbourne, Australia. Jules Verne’s Robur was a conqueror of the air, having invented a heavier-than-air flying machine. Australia’s Robur, on the other hand, touted its strength with an elephant, shown here being seated for a big cuppa in a Robur tea room. I’m fairly certain neither the novelist nor the tea company had anything to do with eachother.
