Galahad

or Sir Galaad (g hard). Son of Sir Launcelot and Elaine, one of the Knights of the Round Table, so pure in life that he was successful in his search for the Sangrail. Tennyson has a poem on the subject, called The Holy Grail.

There Galaad sat, with manly grace,
Yet maiden meekness in his face.

Sir W. Scott: Bridal of Triermain, ii. 13.
