Anoeth Veidawg

‘Foolish Courage’
Anoeth the Bold

One of Arthur’s warriors.

Culhwch and Olwen | Late 11th century

The word anoeth is an intensifier comparable to the English “incredible”, possibly meaning either “wonderful” or “difficult”. The word is used to describe Arthur’s grave in a Welsh poem, which may indicate an early Welsh belief in the mysterious circumstances surrounding Arthur’s death.
