Sir Kay le Strange
Arthurian Literary Character

He was a Knight of the Round Table who fought under Sir Gawain in the Saxon Wars. He later lived in the Valley of No Return, after promising his wife that he would do so until it was destroyed. However, he was imprisoned in the Dolorous Tower until rescued by Sir Lancelot. Sir Kay the Foreigner made appearances at the Nohaut and Leverzep Tournaments, wielding a fine shield made in Toulouse. He was killed by Lancelot's party when he rescued Queen Guinevere from the stake. He should not be confused with the more well-known Sir Kay the Tall.
