King Eidilleg was a male pixie.
King Eidilleg was a plump pixie and the King of the Fair Folk of Prydain in the Dark Ages. Eidilleg was a nice chap (friends with the wizard Dallben) and a wise ruler, although he could be a bit stuffy when ordering his people around; moreover, he was notedly distrustful of humans and other nonmagicals.
Behind the scenesEdit
King Eidilleg first appeared in 1985 in The Black Cauldron. He is based on the character of the same name in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain. However, in Alexander's book, the Fair Folk was the nation of all magical beings in Prydain, as opposed to just pixies; and thus, Eidilleg himself was a dwarf rather than a pixie. Alexander also spelled the name Eiddileg, an unexplained change in the Disney version.
