Description

Lugh Lavada (also written as Lug or Lug Lámhfhada), commonly known as the God or Knight of Light, was a celebrated hero who conquered the Second War of Mag Tuireadh. The book The Knight of Light Lugh, The Hero of Mag Tuireadh describes his triumphant victory over the Fomorians. Following that, he was elected as king of the Tuatha de Danann and ruler of the Aliech Kingdom.

Shortly after the wars, however, Lugh left the Tuatha de Danann and abandoned his kingship for unknown reasons. The Forgotten Legend of Fiodh Forest suggests that the reason he disappeared was because humans drove into arrogance and broke their promises to him.

The weapons Pragarah and Brionac were said to be wielded by Lugh. He is also said to be able to speak in the language of Imps. Most of Lugh's backstory is unknown, but it is widely believed that he simply started out as a commoner.

Trivia

  • Lugh shares his name with the season Lughnasadh (Thursday). In the Irish Mythology, Lugh created that season to commemorate his foster-mother.
