Guitard

Guitardus
Welsh: Gwitard


The Duke of the Poitevins or Poitou who was conquered by Duke Hoel at the behest of Arthur, as part of Arthurís campaign to subjugate all of Europe.

Guitard later became loyal to Arthur and fought for him in the Roman campaign. During the war, Guitard learned that a Roman force was planning to liberate Roman prisoners when they were being escorted to a Paris prison. Guitard arrived just in time and saved Arthurís men from defeat.

He also commanded a company of soldiers in the final battle at Soissons, and there killed King Munstensar of Africa.

His name probably comes from the Welsh Gwitart.
