Ælecti, Electi, Elleti, Gledi

A town in the region of Glevesing.

Here, King Vortigern’s men first became alerted to the child Emrys, when they heard another boy taunt him about having no father. This interested the soldiers, for they had been sent by Vortigern to search for a boy with no father, in order to sprinkle his blood on the foundation of Snowdon.
