Helin le Blank

Hellaine, Helain, Elain, Elyan the White

Like Percivale and Galahad, Helin, the son of Sir Bors and King Brandegoris’ daughter, appears to have been knighted at the age of fifteen, and at about the same time as Galahad. He became a knight of the Round Table and

proved a good knight and an adventurous.

He was eventually to become emperor of Constantinople.

“Le Blank” signifies “the white” and is also an appellation of Elaine of Astolat; I find the resemblance in the names of two such different characters very interesting.
