A Welsh country, containing Caerleon, along the river Usk.

The Life of St. Cadoc notes its king as Gwynnlyw, who was once protected by Arthur. It is named as one of Arthurís courts in Meriadeuc and other texts. A Middle English poem says that Arthur gave the land to Gawain after Gawain fought a great duel against Galleron of Galloway.
