This is the final of our Three Welsh Romances contained in the Mabinogion. Geraint and Enid is a love story, in The Mab it's tweaked slightly to remove the jealous husband aspect who believes his wife has been unfaithful, and then makes her trail after him as he goes on quests, but not letting her speak to him, eventually in the end she proves her worth, and they live happily ever after.
Historically this would have been romantic, to my more modern feminist brain I'd rather she left the idiot to his own questing...
This article has an interesting perspective on the way the original Welsh legends would have originally heard this tale, the ideals of courtly love are a French-Anglo-Norman tradition and not one that is Welsh. Many of the original characters in The Mabinogion were deities, could Enid have been one as well, hence the perfectly realistic expectation that she would accompany Geraint on his quests.
This is a story that has been retold by many other authors, this is one version.
If you'd like to read a fuller written version there's one here.
The name of todays colourway is Marchog, which means Knight in Welsh, more accurately it might also be used to mean horseman, the hierarchy or courts and the sorts of fighting men was very different for the Welsh nobility than it was for the English.
There's barely any extra fibre for today, but Storm is a very comparable colour, and can be found in the shop here.
