Arthur’s court was well known to Welsh storytellers; in the romance Culhwch and Olwen, the protagonist Culhwch invokes the names of 225 individuals affiliated with Arthur. The fame of Arthur’s entourage became so prominent in Welsh tradition that in the later additions to the Welsh Triads, the formula tying named individuals to “Arthur’s Court” in the triad titles began to supersede the older “Island of Britain” formula. Though the code of chivalry crucial to later continental romances dealing with the Round Table is mostly absent from the Welsh material, some passages of Culhwch and Olwen seem to reference it. For instance, Arthur explains the ethos of his court, saying “[w]e are nobles as long as we are sought out: the greater the bounty we may give, the greater our nobility, fame and honour. ”
