    The quest for the Holy Grail is one of the most important elements in the story of King Arthur. Yet even among the many interested in the stories of the Round Table, very few have read at first hand the medieval masterpieces which over a period of some forty years, in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, together became the foundation of the legend of the Grail. Sir Galahad is a knight of King Arthur's Round Table and one of the three achievers of the Holy Grail in Arthurian legend. He is the illegitimate son of Sir Lancelot and Elaine of Carbonek, and is renowned for his gallantry and purity. He is perhaps the knightly embodiment of Jesus in the Arthurian legends. He first appears in the Lancelot-Grail cycle, and his story is taken up in later works.

      Abandoned by a lake by his mother, becoming the most esteemed knight in the court of King Arthur and then embarking on the quest of all the quests for the Holy Grail, betraying Arthur’s trust by laying with his wife, and then causing King’s death indirectly; the legend of Sir Lancelot is an amalgamation of so many varying factors, and thus depicts a true complex existence of a knight in. Sir Galahad by George Frederick Watts (painted in the s) Galahad is portrayed as Arthur’s second-best knight (behind his father) and the most pious of the Knights of the Round Table. Galahad joins the Knights of the Round Table and goes on the quest to find the Holy Grail. Galahad succeeds in that quest, and is transported to heaven.

      On the 8th June , at the height of the Falklands War, 53 men lost their lives and hundreds were injured in Argentine air attacks on British ships Sir Galahad and Sir Tristram. 32 of those men were Welsh Guards - some of them no more than boys.

The welsh quest of galahad It is considered that this translation, which is referable to the early part of the fifteenth century, was made from another codex than that which was used by Malory for the Morte d’Arthur, but it embodied material from the Book of the Holy Graal, which may mean that the anonymous author of the rendering was either the compiler.

The quest for the Grail is the search for God, as well as presentation of the Christian life as perceived by a 13th century mind. Galahad is God’s own minister, charged with a mission which is far beyond his personal concern.
