The Twenty-Four Knights of Arthur's Court (in Welsh Pedwar marchog ar hugain llys Arthur) is a listing of King Arthur's twenty-four chief men, probably created in the mid-15th century according to Bromwich (p. cx). That Kay and Bedwyr are not listed among the 24 knights is one indication that this is a late composition.
This work is often included in late collections of the Welsh triads.
The list is divided into eight triads of knights, some of them from authentic Welsh tradition, and some mainly from French tales.
The knights listed are:
- Three Golden Tongued Knights:
- Three Virgin Knights:
- Three Knights of Battle:
- Three Enchanter Knights:
- Three Royal Knights:
- Three Just Knights:
- Three Irresistible Knights:
- Three Counselor Knights:
