Ivor the Huntsman

A Welsh huntsman who served King Caradoc of Wales.

When Caradoc was slain by his brother, Griffin, Ivor became the foster-father of Caradoc’s children, Meriadoc and Orwen. He saved their lives when Griffin plotted to kill them.

Ivor, the children, and his wife Morwen went into hiding in the forest of Fleventan. In time, Meriadoc was kidnapped by Kay, and Orwen was taken by King Urien of Scotland (Uriens), but Ivor was reunited with them at Arthur’s court.
