by Micha F. Lindemans
Galehaut, the haute prince, or 'the high prince'. He was the ruler of the District Isles, Surluse and other kingdoms. His father was called Brunor and his mother was a giantess called Bagota. When he invaded Britain he became one of Arthur's enemies, but after his defeat at the hands of Lancelot, he became a devoted follower of that knight and through him a friend of Arthur. He was made a Knight of the Round Table. When he thought Lancelot was dead, he himself died from sickness and fasting.
