A city in Arthur’s Britain. It was part of the realm of the King with a Hundred Knights.

Called La Puis de Malohaut, and its lord was called Danain the Red. His wife, Bloie, the Lady of Malahaut, was the lover of Belinant and the mother of Dodinel. Elsewhere Bloie is called Eglante. She became Duke Galeholt’s paramour. Perhaps Bloie, when widowed, acted as vice-regent for the King with the Hundred Knights.

The location of this subkingdom is unknown.
