One of Arthur’s warriors in Welsh legend.
In Culhwch he was titled ‘King of France‘ – probably representing William I – although the same distinction is given to Iona and Paris in the same stories. Attending at Arthur’s court was also his son-in-law, Duke Alan Fyrgant.
Gwilenhin is a Welsh word meaning “high king” or “overlord.”
