Irish - A prince of Ulster. He fell in love with Aillinn, a daughter of the king of Leinster, a traditional enemy of Ulster. They arranged to meet but when Baile arrived at the meeting place a stranger told him that Aillinn was dead, whereupon Baile died of grief. The same stranger then told Aillinn that her lover was dead, and she died broken-hearted. Their story was carved into branches of the yew tree and apple tree that grew on their graves, and these branches, when placed together, became inseparable. Also commonly known as Baile.
