The song has the following lines:

"Beware, beware the Daughter of the Sea." "Beware," I heard him cry.

And, in the ending:

To his nation, with his last breath, cried, "Beware the Daughter of the Sea."

Is the meaning of these sentences to warn 'the Daughter of the Sea' (like in 'But beware, dear brother, ...') or to warn against her (like in 'Beware the dog')

The complement of beware is something you are being warned about.

Be forewarned about the Daughter of the Sea.

The Daughter of the Sea presents a danger of some kind.

You would say

Beware, brother, the Daughter of the Sea.


Beware, O brother, the Daughter of the Sea.

if you wanted to include the person being given the warning.

The person being warned would not have the in front of their name.
