Virtuous Knight Galahad


Raised in a monastery, Galahad knows neither his parents' names nor faces. All he knows is that his father was a "great warrior." Trusting in that fact, Galahad worked hard to join the elite Knights of the Round Table. After breezing through the many trials King Arthur put to him, Galahad was welcomed into their ranks.

Name OriginEdit

Sir Galahad (Middle Welsh: Gwalchavad, sometimes referred to as Galeas or Galath), in Arthurian legend, is a knight of King Arthur's Round Table and one of the three achievers of the Holy Grail. He is the illegitimate son of Lancelot and Elaine of Corbenic, and is renowned for his gallantry and purity.

knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the Monarch or country, especially in a military capacity. Historically, in Europe, knighthood has been conferred upon mounted warriors. During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of lower nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior. Often, a knight was a vassal who served as a fighter for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings. The lords trusted the knights, who were skilled in battle on horseback. Since the early modern period, the title of knight is purely honorific, usually bestowed by a monarch, as in the British honours system, often for non-military service to the country.
