Caledfwlch


In Welsh mythology, Caledfwlch is the name of Arthur's sword, which we more commonly know as Excalibur. In turn, it may have been derived from the Irish sword Caladbolg, indicating that stories about the sword existed for hundreds of years before the stories of King Arthur in their current form.

Arthur's equipment is listed in the story Culhwch and Olwen, in which his dagger is named Carnwenhau, his lance is Rhonogomyant (as opposed to Ron), and his shield is Wynebgwrthucher (as opposed to Pridwen).
