Galoes of Anjou

Galoies, Galwes

Perceval’s paternal uncle, whose name Wolfram probably borrowed from Hartmann’s Galoes.

The son of King Gandin and Queen Schoette, brother of the ladies Flurdamurs and Limmire, and the knight Sir Gahmuret.

Galoes inherited the kingdom of Anjou. Galoes’s brother, Gahmuret, set out in search of adventure despite Galoes’s pleas for him to remain at court. Galoes loved the lady Annore, Queen of Averre, and he died in her service at Muntori. His slayer was Duke Orilus of Lalander.
