Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia

Knight of the Two Swords

The name adopted by Meriadeuc during his early adventures at Arthur’s court.

Ignorant of his true name, he was called Handsome Young Man until knighted by Arthur. He received swords from both Arthur and his future wife, Lady Lore of Cardigan, for which Kay gave him this alias.
