British - A one-handed Knight of the Round Table. A personal attendant on the king. Son of Pedrawd or of King Arthur. Brother of Lucan. Father of Amhren and Ereuawg. In the story of Culhwch and Olwen he was one of the party of Arthur's men helping Culhwch in his quest. When the king invaded and conquered much of the Continent he helped the king in his fight with the giant of Mont Saint-Michel and, when Arthur returned to Britain, Bedivere was left in charge of Normandy. He and Lucan helped the wounded king into the shelter of a chapel after the final battle with Mordred. Lucan soon died from wounds received in the battle. Arthur instructed Bedivere to throw Excalibur into the lake. Bedivere coveted the sword and twice told the king he had done as instructed when, in fact, he had hidden the sword under a tree. He finally obeyed the king's orders and threw the sword into the lake, where a hand came out of the water and took the sword beneath the surface. He then carried the king on his back to the edge of the water where a boat waited to carry Arthur to Avalon. He wandered for some time and finally came to a hermitage where the Bishop of Canterbury lived, and there in the chapel saw the tomb of the king. He gave up all his knightly pursuits and lived the rest of his life as a hermit. In some accounts he was made Duke of Neustria and was killed in King Arthur's campaign against Rome. Also called Bedivere, Bedevere, Bedevere, Bedivere, Bedivere, Bedver, Bedver, Bedivere, Bedivere, Bedwor, Bedwor, Bedivere, Bedivere, Belvoure, Belvoure or Bedivere.
