First Appearance

Galahad was one of the legendary Knights of the Round Table commanded by King Arthur who ruled England circa the 6th Century. They were the primary defenders of Camelot during the period. He and the other Knights defended the realm until the fall of Camelot. The Knights have spawned many legends and stories throughout England and Europe and as such there are many accounts.


6th Century

Years prior to the fall of Camelot, the Knights and their King were unaware that Arthur's relative Mordred and his consort Morgan Le Fay plotted to take over the kingdom. However the royal wizard Merlyn divined this treachery and called upon Sir Percy of Scandia, Mordred's nephew, to come to Camelot and act as his champion the Black Knight. In order to maintain a secret identity, Percy acted as a clumsy pacifist, whom the Knights thought very little of. Not long after Sir Percy's arrival, King Arthur went missing prompting Lancelot, Galahad and Sir Gawain went out searching for the King unaware that Mordred has secretly locked Arthur in the dungeons below the castle. The searched fruitlessly until the Black Knight rescued Arthur from the dungeon, but could not find evidence that implicated Mordred in the plot.[3] He and the knights later searched for King Arthur when he was captured by French-Sicilian pirates until the king was eventually rescued by the Black Knight.[4]

Years later, Lancelot began an affair with Queen Guinevere, a betrayal that contributed to the fall of Camelot and a dissolution of the Knights of the Round Table.[5]

When Hercules assembled the Gods of War to battle the new gods of the Uprising Storm, Tiresias proposed to contact Arthur, and that he brought Galahad and Bors along with him, but Hercules recalled him he was still sleeping.[1] It is unknown if he did try to contact him in the end.
