Meaning & History

Derived from Latin agrestis meaning "rural, rustic, wild, brutish", from ager "field, farm". This is the name of an ancient pagan king of Camelot in the Old French Arthurian romance 'Estoire del Saint Graal' ("History of the Holy Grail", 1220-35). In a time long before Arthur, God punishes Agrestes for massacring the Christians in Camelot (converted by Josephus, son of Joseph of Arimathea and guardian of the Holy Grail) with madness and death; the king commits suicide by diving into a fire after eating his hands and slaughtering his family.
