Calʹidore (3 syl)

.

Sir Calʹidore is the type of courtesy, and hero of the sixth book of Spenser’s Faërie Queene. He is described as the most courteous of all knights, and is entitled the “all-beloved.” The model of the poet was Sir Philip Sidney. His adventure is against the Blatant Beast, whom he muzzles, chains, and drags to Faërie Land.

Sir Gawain was the Calidore of the Round Table.”—Southey.
