How to use Pelles in a sentence
Ye shall not do so, said King Pelles, by my counsel, for it is hard an ye escape without a shame.Le Morte D'Arthur, Volume II (of II) | Thomas Malory
But King Pelles was unaware of what thoughts lay within the heart of his daughter.
And they of the court of King Pelles were very glad that so famous a knight had come thither, wherefore they paid him great honor.
At this passion of sorrow King Pelles was much amazed and he said, "Whom hast thou seen, my daughter?"
They abode in that ship until they had come to the castle of King Pelles, who welcomed them right gladly.Stories from Le Morte D'Arthur and the Mabinogion | Beatrice Clay
