Goreu

Welsh - A page at King Arthur's court. Son of Custennin. He was the only survivor of Custennin's twenty-four sons; the others had all been killed by Custennin's brother, the giant Ysbaddaden. He accompanied Culhwch on his quest for the hand of Olwen. When all the conditions had been fulfilled, he killed Ysbaddaden and cut off his head, whereupon all his dead brothers were restored to life. He is said to have rescued King Arthur from three prisons - the Castle of Oeth and Anoeth, the Castle of Pendragon and the Dark Prison under the Stone. In some lore, occasionally known as Goreu.
