A long standing ally of Camelot Gawant is ruled by the Gildenwolf family. The current ruler is King Frederick Gildenwolf. Gawant is a conservative realm that only permits men to sit on the throne. Noble blood is highly valued in Gawant. Magic remains banned in Gawant however the current king is known to judge individuals as individuals and the sentences for the use of magic in Gawant vary depending on how and why magic is used.
The king is known to be very conservative and is a stickler for tradition. He is also known to care for his people though he can be hot-tempered at times. In his prime Frederick was one of the strongest and most robust men in all of Albion. Though he has lost some of his physical prowess he remains an impressive physical specimen and continues to train daily. The loss of his son was a bitter blow to the king. Those who brought his killers to justice would earn Frederick's favour.
The Members of the Gildenwolf Family
King Godwyn Gildenwolf (deceased) - Frederick's older brother, was Uther's ally in the War Against Magic.
Queen Glynis Gildenwolf (deceased) - Godwyn's wife, died shortly after Elena's birth
Princess Elena Gildenwolf - Godwyn's and Rosamund's daughter, now 45, Elena was possessed by a Sidhe for much of her life, making her clumsy and unladylike. Eventually freed by Merlin and Gaius she is now as graceful and elegant as people expect a princess to be. She and Arthur were to be wed but they rejected the union sought by their fathers as they did not love each other. Elena later married Lord Cledwyn Allerin.
Prince Consort Cledwyn Allerin - 47 years old, Cledwyn is a brave and skilled swordsman who has served the throne of Gawant with distinction for many years.
Prince Colwyn Gildenwolf, Heir to the Throne of Gawant - Elena's son Colwyn is the current Heir to the Throne of Gawant and King Frederick's chief lieutenant. At only 22 years old he remains unwed and is currently seeking a match.

Prince Daffyd Gildenwolf (deceased) - Fredrick's only son was killed twelve years ago when on patrol on the borders of Gawant. Daffyd was a skilled administrator and tactician and had long been trained in the art of statecraft. His loss was a severe blow to Gawant not to mention a devastating loss for the king. He was said to have been killed by the witch lover of the evil warlock Mostyn he had slain the week before and there was some evidence that magic was used in the attack.
