NIGHTBRINGER | The Arthurian Encyclopedia

Guy of Warwick

In the opinion of the antiquary Edward Lhuyd, this hero of romance was identical with Arthur.

His story tells of his slaying an awful beast called the Dun Cow and a Danish giant named Colbrand. His story bears little resemblance to that of Arthur and in romance his achievements are placed in the reign of Athelstan (925-939).
