Galantine, Galantyne, Galuth

Gawaine’s sword, given to him by the Lady of the Lake. Malory calls it Galantyne and Gawaine used it in the Roman War.

It is described as a powerful and radiant sword, often depicted as having a blad as bright as the sun. Galatine is closely linked to Gawain’s character and his reputation as a noble and courageous knight.

The Alliterative Morte Arthure calls it Galuth.
