Sir Owain was a Knight of Camelot who was the first to take up the challenge of Tristan de Bois.

History

Sir Owain was an inexperienced Knight of Camelot. He was trained by Arthur and died when Tristan de Bois was raised from the dead as a Wraith through necromancy, meaning that he was invulnerable to mortal weapons and thus managed to kill Owain (Excalibur). Owaine was only a young man when he died.

Historicity

Owain (died in 595) was one of the four sons of Urien, King of Reghed. He fought with his father against the Angles of Bernicia, in 590, and, after his father's death, became the king of Reghed, but not for a long time, since this kingdom lost his sovereignty to the Northumbria's. The principal source of the real existence of Owain, is the bard of Urien, Taliesin, in his poem Gweith Argoed Llwyfain (The Battle of Argoed Llwyfain).

In the legend

Owain takes a major role in Arthurian legends. He was one of the earliest Knights mentioned in Geoffrey of Monmouth' Historia Regum britanniae. Chrétien de Troyes wrote a book about him, Yvain, the Knight of the Lion around 1170 and Thomas Malory, in Le Morte Darthur, made him the son of Morgan le Fay and King Urien, and subsequently the nephew of Arthur.

Morgana

Owain appeared to be a favourite of the Lady Morgana. Morgana begged Arthur to take Owain's place in the duel, and gave Owain her favour's to wear. She has not been seen to take as much intrest in another Knight infering that she was good freind's with Owain.
