Ser Galladon of Morne, also called the Perfect Knight, was a legendary knight from Tarth.[1] Many nobles and smallfolk from the island claim to be descended from him.[2]

Legend

Ser Galladon was a perfect knight. His valor was so great the Maiden, of the Seven, fell in love with him. She gave him an enchanted sword, the Just Maid, to demonstrate her love for him. No sword could check the sword's blows, no shield could stop them.

According to the legend, Galladon only unsheathed the sword three times, not once against a mortal man, for the fight would have been unfair.[3]

History

Maester Hubert in his Kin of the Stag suggests that Galladon of Morne was not a warrior of the Age of Heroes turned into a knight by singers, but an actual historical figure of more recent times, noting that Morne was a royal seat of petty kings on the eastern coast of Tarth until the Storm Kings made them submit, though its ruins were made by Andals and not the First Men.[4]
