Lennox is a historical region in the southern part of modern-day Scotland, in the historic county of Dunbartonshire.

It originally belonged to Sir Galleron, but Arthur annexed it and gave it to Gawain. Galleron arrived at a feast and challenged Gawain for ownership of the land. The fight ended in a draw, but Gawain graciously returned the country to Galleron anyway.

Lennox | 0 to 800 AD

The history of the region that would later become Lennox during this period is not extensively documented in specific detail due to limited historical records from that era. Here are some general insights into the broader historical context of the region.

Roman Influence | 1st to 4th centuries AD
During the Roman occupation of Britain, which began in the first century AD, the area was part of the Roman province of Britannia. The Romans built roads and fortifications in the region, includin the Antonine Wall, which ran through central Scotland and marked the northernmost extent of Roman control.

Post-Roman Period | 5th to 8th centuries AD
After the Roman withdrawal from Britain in the early fifth century, the region entered a period of significant change and transition. Various tribal groups and kingdoms, such as the Picts, Scots, and Britons, vied for control of different parts of Scotland, including areas around the Clyde River and Loch Lomond. The exact political boundaries and control of this region likely fluctuated during this time, making it challenging to pinpoint specific historical events.

Early Medieval Period | 8th century AD
By the eighth century, the Kingdom of Dal Riata, which included parts of western Scotland, exerted influence in the region. Dumbarton Rock, which is located in the Lennox region and overlooks the Clyde River, was the site of a significant fortress and settlement. Known as Alt Clut (Alclud), it served as a stronghold for the Kingdom of Strathclyde.
