LEODEGRAUNCE.  Arthurian.  King of Camelyard, and father of Guenever.  Other forms include Laodegan, Leodegan, and Leodogran.

Leodegraunce or Leodogran, king of Camelyard, father of Guenever (king Arthur's wife).  Uther the pendragon gave him the famous Round Table, which would seat 150 knights (pt. i. 45); and when Arthur married Guenever, Leodegraunce gave him the table and 100 knights as a wedding gift (pt. i. 45).  The table was made by Merlin, and each seat had on it the name of the knight to whom it belonged.  One of the seats was called the "Siege Perilous," because no one could sit on it without "peril of his life" except sir Galahad the virtuous and chaste, who accomplished the quest of the holy graal.—Sir T. Malory, History of Prince Arthur (1470). (The Reader's Handbook of Famous Names in Fiction, &c., Brewer, 1910)

Leodogran, the king of Camellard [sic],
Had one fair daughter and none other child;
And she was fairest of all flesh on earth,
Guinevere, and in her his one delight.
Tennyson, Coming of Arthur.
