David of Israel

The biblical king of Israel and Judah; son of Saul and father of Solomon. The Vulgate romances purport that Lancelot, through his maternal grandmother, was David’s descendant.

David’s sword, enhanced by Solomon, was later called the Sword of the Strange Hangings and was owned by Galahad.
