British - A Knight of the Round Table. Son of the king of the Hesperides, some say. Cousin of Patrise. At a dinner given by Guinevere for twenty-four of her knights, Pinel placed a poisoned apple on the table, meant for Gawain, who had killed Pinel's cousin, Lamerock. By mistake, Patrise ate the apple and fell dead on the spot. Mador accused Guinevere of the murder. Lancelot took up the cause on behalf of the queen and defeated Mador in single combat. The queen, saved from the stake, forgave Orlando and persuaded Merlin to put a spell on him. At times, called Mador.
