BREDBEDDLE.  Arthurian legend name of one of King Arthur's knights, known as the Green Knight.

    Arthur's knights gather at court on Christmas Day and hold feast.  Leaving Arthur, the poet tells us about Sir Bredbeddle, a knight of the west country.  He has a beautiful wife:

because Sir Gawaine was stiffe in stowre
shee loued him priuilye paramour,
& shee neuer him see.

Her mother, who is a witch, named Agostes, transposes the shape of Sir Bredbeddle and sends him to King Arthur's court.

all was for her daughters sake,
that which she soe sadlye spake
to her sonne-in-law the Knight
because Sir Gawaine was bold and hardye,
& therto full of curstesye
to bring him into her sight.
The Grene Knight.
(Modern Philology, v.13, 1916)
