Carnwennan Was The Dagger Of King Arthur In The Welsh Arthurian Legends
Legends about King Arthur are widely known in English storytelling but rarely is King Arthur considered in Welsh storytelling. A Welsh version of King Arthur is a warrior who wielded a magical weapon named Carnwennan, a dagger with the ability to cast its master into shadow. Arthur used this dagger to slain the witch Orddu and slice her in half.
