Sir Galeholt started life as an ambitious noble who has lived in exile in Britain for many years. He is the son of a knight named Sir Bruenor, who had been exiled years earlier by King Gilmaurius to a lonely castle on the Bay of Cardiff.
As an ordinary knight, Sir Galeholt supported and fought for King Arthur. In time he earned great wealth and renown, and forged a loyal household of followers. In 521, he led those followers (plus a sizable contingent of mercenaries) north to war against Gilmaurius.
After defeating his hated rival, Galeholt declared himself “Duke of the Long Isles” and set about consolidating his holdings, which stretch from Ireland to Pictland.
