Number 3 above, Gwendolen, is a fictitious invention of Geoffrey of Monmouth (History of the Kings of Britain) as is her purported husband Locrinus. One thing Geoffrey was good at was spinning good fairy stories. Most, not all, of the kings mentioned in his History did not exist. Some are attested by early Latin inscription dating from the Roman conquest, eg Cymbeline/Cunobelinus, Caractacus/Caradoc, etc.

Joan of Arc was 15th century. Not really considered ancient.
