In the legends of King Arthur, Cameliard is the home of Guinevere and her father, King Leodegrance.[1] Although the legends traditionally place the kingdom in Wales, historical roots may be found in Cornwall.[2] It was at Cameliard that the Round Table was kept prior to being given to Arthur by Leodegrance as part of Guinevere's dowry.
