The kingdom of Arthur’s father-in-law, King Leodegrance, in Scotland or else in south-west England, possibly having some association with the north Cornish Camel or the town of Camelford. One of the most important cities was Carolhaise.
Thus, Cameliard would include the eastern half of Cheshire joined to Derbyshire or the western half of Derbyshire, arching above Staffordshire so as not to cut into the territory of Bertilak de Hautdesert and the Green Chapel.
The country was invaded by Saxons led by King Rions in the early days of Arthur’s reign, and its two principle cities, Aneblayse and Carhaix, were besieged. Arthur, Merlin, King Ban of Benoic, and King Bors of Gannes traveled to Carmelide and twice helped Leodegan rout the invaders; Arthur himself slew Rions. Tennyson replaces Rions’ invasion with one by King Urien.
Malory calls King Leodegrance’s kingdom Camiliard.
