Cellliwig

Cellliwig

The Color: Two stripes in chocolate brown and mint green. The Story: Celliwig, which means "forest grove," is a place name in Cornwall. In some of the Welsh stories, Celliwig is the name given to Arthur's court (what we think of as Camelot). It is described as a rather luxurious place, full of splendor. Scholars have tried to find the location of Celliwig, and several places within Cornwall have been put forward as possibilities. For example, focusing on the "forest grove" name, one place in Cornwall has a Latin name that translates to "the outpost of the sacred grove" so it has...

Lai of the Horn

Lai of the Horn

The Color: Four stripes with melony orange alternating with dark brown and dark blue. The Story: This poem from the 12th century tells the story of a fay-made horn that is enchanted to spill on a drinker who has been cuckolded (basically, whose wife has cheated on him). When Arthur drinks from the horn, he is soaked by the contents. Guenevere tells him a story of once giving a ring to a young man (hiding, of course, her affair with Lancelot!). Arthur is appeased by this story but even more so by the fact that the horn spills on every drinker but...

Calogrenant's Misadventure

Calogrenant's Misadventure

The Story: During the time of Pentecost, the knights and ladies of Arthur’s court are gathered for a feast. As at most of these occasions, the knights regale the court with tales of their exploits. Sir Calogrenant has a story, but he does not want to share it because he is ashamed, but the court refuses to let him stay silent. So he tells his tale. He was riding through a forest when he came upon a rocky road full of thorns, which he decided to take. After a long ride, he saw a castle in the distance. On the drawbridge...

Hard Rock Like Lancelot

Hard Rock Like Lancelot

The Color: A three stripe sequence of dark denim blue, golden brown, and charcoal grey. The Story: In the brilliant musical Hamilton, during the Marquis de Lafayette’s introduction, he refers to himself as “the Lancelot of the revolutionary set.” Later, Hamilton says Lafayette is “hard rock like Lancelot.” It may seem like a fun but loose reference (both Lafayette and Lancelot are French, for example), but there’s genius behind this connection. Also in Lafayette’s intro, he says, “Who’s the best? C’est moi!” In the musical Camelot, Lancelot has an entire song called “C’est moi!” in which he brags about how wonderful he is. And...

Sir Cadogan's Pony

Sir Cadogan's Pony

The Color: Grey is anything but boring in this grey-dient colorway. The Story: Sir Cadogan is a knight of the Round Table – at least he is in the Harry Potter universe (his tale didn’t make it into the Muggle versions). Most famous for his fight against the Wyvern of Wye, Cadogan was a foolhardy knight, and this battle highlighted his temperament. After the wyvern at his horse, Cadogan found a fat pony grazing nearby and charged back toward the beast, holding only a broken wand. And that broken wand was his saving grace as it misfired and hit the...
