1. Gales
      Gale, Galet, Galez, Galles, Galoes, Galys, Glois, Walis, Walys

      A kingdom which is usually identified with Wales, used by many writers, some of whom were confused into making it a kingdom separate from Wales. Gottfried von Strassburg, for instance, erroneously believed that it was populated by Saxons, and that the name of England (Engeland) was derived from it.

      The Vulgate romances purport that the name came from its first king, Galahad, the youngest son of Joseph of Arimathea - prior to this, it was called Hoselice.

    2. Gales the Bald
      Gales Lithauz, - li Caus, - li Chans, - li Chaus, - li Gaiz; Giles li Chaufs, Wales li Caus

      An Arthurian knight first mentioned in Chrétien’s Erec.

      He has little significance until the Fourth Continuation of Chrétien’s Perceval, in which the author names him as the father of Perceval by the lady Philosofine (Philosophine), replacing Alain from Robert de Boron’s cycle and Pellinore from the Vulgate Cycle.

      According to the Vulgate Merlin, he goes with Arthur and his allies to succour King Leodegan (Leodegrance) in the battles against King Rions. He is also one of the knights who undertake the first and second quest of Lancelot.

      In Heinrich von dem Türlin’s Diu Crône, his beloved, Filleduch, fails a chastity test. In Claris et Laris, Gales avenges a knight’s murder by slaying his killer.

      The Everyman's edition of 1987 definitely gives his name as "the Bald" which certainly means "Bold".

    3. Gales the Gay

      A good and handsome knight of Arthur's court who fought for Arthur in a war against the King with a Hundred Knights and the King from the Land Beyond the Borders of Galone.

      His brother was Arthur's knight Helis the Blond.
