British - A Scottish Knight of the Round Table. A king of Galloway. He fought Gawain for the ownership of land given by King Arthur to Gawain who yielded to Galleron on the condition that he paid for a million masses to be said for the soul of Guinevere's mother. In another version, they wounded each other so badly that they took weeks to recover. Then Gawain handed over the land to Galleron and joined the Round Table. He fought Palamedes and was defeated, saved from death only by the intervention of Tristram. He was one of the twelve knights who helped Agravain and Mordred when they attempted to seize Lancelot in Guinevere's room. All except Mordred were killed by Lancelot. Also identified as Galleron, Galeron or Galeron.
