Geraint’ (g hard).
Tributary Prince of Devon, and one of the knights of the Round Table. Overhearing part of E’nid’s words, he fancied she was faithless to him, and treated her for a time very harshly; but Enid nursed him so carefully when he was wounded that he saw his error, “nor did he doubt her more, but rested in her fealty, till he crowned a happy life with a fair death.” (Tennyson: Idylls of the King; Enid.)   1
