Welsh - The Welsh name for Tristram. In some lore, occasionally known as Trystan.
Welsh - The Welsh version of the story of Tristram and Isolde. When Trystan eloped with Esyllt, wife of March, taking their servants Bychan and Golwg and Trystan's companion Cae Hir, March tried to get her back by force. Three times their armies met and each time Trystan won. Some say that King Arthur was asked to judge the issue and decreed that her favours should be shared between the two men, one during the period when the trees are in leaf, the other when they are leafless. March chose the winter period but Trystan pointed out that evergreens never lose their leaves and so claimed Esyllt for himself. Also called Trystan.
