Gorlois

Gorlois

Duke Gorlois was lord of Cornwall. He was a key ally of Aurelius Ambrosius, but relations between him and King Uther were always rocky. They came to war, however, when King Uther began to openly lust for Duke Gorlois's wife and Gorlois in turn broke hospitality with Uther. The war between Cornwall and Logres eventually led to his death.
