Morgant Hael

‘Morgant the Generous’, ‘Morgant the Wealthy’

An Arthurian warrior in Welsh legend. He was the father of Rhyawdd.

A Morgant (Morcant) is listed in Nennius as a late sixth century northern king who battled the Saxons with Urien.

A Welsh Triad calls him one of the three “red ravishers” of Britain; a separate Welsh source tells us that his chariot had the magical ability of immediate transportation.
