Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


A good knight and friend of Gawaine.

Galahad and Yvain the Bastard lodged at his father’s house during the Grail Quest. Dalides arrogantly and rashly attacked Galahad and was defeated. In shame, he killed himself with his own sword, prompting his father to likewise commit suicide.

His body was taken to the Strange Castle, owned by Dalides’ paramour. Gawaine, learning of the incident, tried to take revenge on Galahad, but failed.
