A constant companion and cup bearer of King Arthur
He was the last Knight left alive on the field of the battle against Sir Mordred at Slaughterbridge, near Tintagel. When King Arthur received his death wound he deputed Sir Bedivere to return his sword Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake at Dosmary Pool near Tintagel. Throwing the sword into the lake there came a hand and an arm up out of the water, caught the sword by the hilt and then vanished beneath the water.
After the death of King Arthur he retired to a hermitage, where he remained
until his death.
