Garselit Vydel

One of Arthur’s warriors in Culhwch and Olwen. He was an Irishman and an expert houndsman:

the chief huntsman of Ireland.

As one of his tasks, the warrior Culhwch had to obtain Garselid’s help in hunting the boar Twrch Trwyth. Garselid did attend the hunt, and was killed by the boar Cwm Cerwyn.
