Caradawg Strong-Arm

Son of Llyr of the Sea, father of Cawrdaf, and Arthur’s chief advisor in Welsh legend. Caradawg is said to be Arthur’s first cousin, but Llyr is never said to be related to Eigyr (Igerne) or Uther.

He rode a horse named Host-Splitter.

He was adapted by French writers as Caradoc Shortarm.
