Duke Gorlois was a grizzled veteran of many fights, battles, and wars. He was the first from Cornwall to support Aurelius Ambrosius, who honored Gorlois with this dukedom, despite the latter’s dwarfish stature. He spent his life defending it from Irish raiders and Cornwall plunderers.
Gorlois was noted for his loyalty to his beautiful wife and his tremendous personal courage. He fell in battle against Prince Madoc after Uther made war with Cornwall over perceived (and vague) insults against the crown.
