Cichoriades of Cornwall

A king in the story of Cornwall.

He was the son of King Canor of Cornwall and Chelinde and the half-brother of Apollo. He became king of Cornwall after his father. Saint Augustine converted him to Christianity.

His wife, Joene, was unfaithful to him and Cichoriades locked her in a tower. When her lover presented himself at the base of the tower, Cichoriades started climbing down on a rope. Joene cut the rope from the top, and Cichoriades fell to his death.
