Goreu ab Custennin
Goreu the son of Custennin is recorded as the deliverer of Arthur from the three imprisonments assigned to him
in the Triads.
The three supreme prisoners of the Island of Britain, Llyr Llediaith, in the prison of Euroswydd
Wledig, and Madoc or Mabon, son of Modron, and Geyr the son of Geyrybed or Geiryoed; and one more exalted than the three, and
that was Arthur, who was for three nights in the Castle of Oeth and Anoeth, and three nights in the prison of Wen Pendragon,
and three nights in the dark prison under the stone - And one youth released him from these three prisons; that youth was Goreu
the son of Custennin, his cousin.
The Castle of Oeth and Anoeth is spoken of in the Mabinogion while in another series of the Triads it is named as
the prison of Geyr. In this version, Arthur is not alluded to, but all the members of the families of the other prisoners are said to
have shared their captivity, which is designated as the most complete ever known to have taken place.
