Featured Article: Sir Gawain


Liam Neeson as Gawain in Excalibur

Gawain
(also called Gwalchmei, Gawan, Gauvain, Walewein, etc.) is usually King Arthur’s nephew and a Knight of the Round Table who appears very early in the Arthurian legend's development.

He is one of a select number of Round Table members to be referred to as the greatest knight, most notably in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

In Welsh Arthurian literature, Gawain appears in adaptations and translations of French tales as Gwalchmei. Gwalchmei may have been a hero who originally had no connection with Gawain but was equated with him.
