Baron Gillam Gwyharë; "Gillam the Kneeler"

Gillam Gwyharë; known derisively as “Gillam the Kneeler,” was the last ruler of the Barony of Ghastonne, who surrendered to Valden the Conqueror. His Barony then became part of the kingdom of Valdor.

Lord Gillam bent the knee to King Valden and surrendered the city of Ashara, after seeing his army defeated in battle. He saved the city from a destructive siege but history has called him the "Kneeler".

Legend has it that Gillam had the last laugh against King Valden. When King Valden visited Ashara after the peace accord was signed, Baron Gillam introduced the king to one of his distant cousins; Lady Naomi Mallistäer, who was the very same woman who would later seduce King Valden, and later give birth to a bastard son.

The birth of this bastard child would ultimately cause the kingdom of Valdor to be torn asunder only twenty years later.
