Eiddyl the Tall

One of Arthur’s warriors in Welsh legend.

Eiddyl accompanied Arthur to the cave of the Black Hag in the Valley of Distress, in order to obtain the Black Hag’s blood for Culhwch.

Eiddyl and Amren the Tall were the second pair of warriors to enter the cave; both were beaten within an inch of their lives.
