le Chastel de Charroie
Carroc, Carroie, Carroye, Chariot, Charroc, Charrot, Charroye, Charyot

A castle which Uther Pendragon wrestled from King Amant.

Uther bestowed it on King Bors of Gannes, and Bors gave it either to his brother Guinebal or to the Lord of the Castle of the Fens. When Arthur first came to power and was struggling against the Saxons, Amant tried to recapture Charroie, but he was slain by King Bors.

It is probably identical with Chariot.
