1. Brendan

    In the Bliocadran Prologue to Chrétien de Troyes Perceval, Perceval's mother, after her husband's death, tells her court that she is going to visit St. Brendan, when in actuality she plans to flee into the forest with her son.

  2. Brendan, Saint

    Presented as a Scottish saint in Bliocadran, St. Brendan was actually an Irish missionary who lived c. 484-577, which would place him in the Arthurian time frame.

    His church in Scotland serves as the burial place of the Red Knight (killed by Perceval) in the Fourth Continuation of Chrétien's Perceval.
