After Lord Godwyn's wife died in childbirth, the Sidhe Elder visited Gawant and turned their newborn daughter, Princess Elena, into a changeling. He did so as part of a plan to one day gain control over the throne of Camelot, which nearly came to fruition twenty years later when Uther and Godwyn decided to unify their kingdoms with a marriage agreement between Arthur and Elena.
Fortunately, Merlin and Gaius were able to rid Elena of the Sidhe that was possessing her, and Arthur and Elena decided to call off their wedding because they did not love one another. Uther was initially upset by their choice, but Godwyn felt that they'd done the right thing and the two kingdoms remained allies (The Changeling).
- Gawant and Camelot have been unofficial allies since the early days of Uther's reign (The Changeling).
