Edʹyrn

.

Son of Nudd; called the “Sparrowhawk.” He ousted the Earl of Ynʹiol from his earldom, and tried to win Eʹnid, the earl’s daughter, but failing in this, became the evil genius of the gentle earl. Being overthrown in a tournament by Prince Geraintʹ, he was sent to the court of King Arthur, where his whole nature was completely changed, and “subdued to that gentleness which, when it weds with manhood, makes a man.” (Idylls of the King; Enid.)
