Garloth

Galerot, Garelot, Garloc, Garlot

A kingdom, castle, or city in northern Britain, near Clarence. The Vulgate Merlin mentions both Urien and Nentres as its rulers; Malory gives it entirely to the latter.

It was one of the lands in rebellion against Arthur in the early days of his reign. Garloth was invaded by Saxons, and served as the site of several important battles. It was ruled by Queen Blasine of Garlot.

It might be identical with Galloway. Phyllis Ann Karr says: “With few clues as to the location of this kingdom, I suggest East Lothian.”
