Eda Great Knee

A Welsh Triad tells us that the warriors Peredur and Gwrgi – elsewhere given as Arthur’s warriors – were killed fighting Eda Great-Knee at Caer Greu. This defeat was attributed to the desertion of Peredur’s and Gwrgi’s warriors just prior to the battle.

Eda’s character is likely based on an actual eighth-century Northumbrian king.
