Geraintʹ (g hard)

.

Tributary Prince of Devon, and one of the knights of the Round Table. Overhearing part of Eʹnid’s words, he fancied she was faithless to him, and treated her for a time very harshly; but Enid nursed him so carefully when he was wounded that he saw his error, “nor did he doubt her more, but rested in her fealty, till he crowned a happy life with a fair death.” (Tennyson: Idylls of the King; Enid.)
