    (Welsh: Hywel; Latin: Hovelius; English: Howel)
    As a son of Budic II's 1st marriage, King Hoel the Great was nephew to the famous High-King A rthur of Britain. Tradition says he spent much of his youth at the King's Court. Hoel lived t here in exile as a child &, although he returned to Brittany when his father was recalled, h e was soon asked back to help his uncle overcome the Saxon scourge. Hoel supposedly landed a t Southampton & immediately moved north with a considerable army to assist King Arthur at th e Battle of Dubglas, the Siege of Caer-Ebrauc (York) and the Battle of Celidon Coit, before b eing besieged himself at Caer-Brithon (Dumbarton Rock). Hoel's greatest hour, however, was a t the triumphant Battle of Mount Badon. Later he took part in Arthur's continental campaigns , conquering Gaul and enabling Arthur to establish his government in Paris! Hoel then returne d to his own Kingdom, where King Tristram of Lyonesse was supposed to have helped him to vict ory during a Breton Civil War. Hoel probably ruled jointly in Cornouaille with his ageing fat her. They apparently, both d. in the same yr (545) & were succeeded by Hoel's eldest son, Tew dwr Mawr. Literary writers have transformed Sir Howel into a Knight of the Round Table, but a s most info. about him comes from these & later sources, his historicity is in some doubt.
