Orefoise, Orofaise

A country and a castle, situated between Sorelois and North Wales.

The country vers Sorelois en la fin du roiaume de Norgales, which Phyllis Ann Karr translate

toward Surluse near the end [tip?] of the kingdom of Norgales.

Orofoise would approximate the northern half of Shropshire.

King Aminaduc’s wife sent a giant to destroy Orofoise, hoping Arthur’s knights would be killed. Arthur himself answered the plea for help from the Countess of Orofoise.
