1. Gandin

      The king of Anjou, son of Addanz, husband of Schoutte, father of Galoes, Gahmuret, Limmire, and Flurdamurs, and grandfather of Percivale, according to Wolfram.

      He appointed his daughter Limmire Queen of Styria. When he died in battle, his son Galoes inherited the kingdom.

    2. Gandin

      In Gottfried’s Tristan, a mischievous knight from Ireland who was enamored with Isolde. Skilled in playing the rote (a type of stringed instrument), he traveled to Mark’s court and entertained Mark with his music. Mark was led to make a rash promise to grant Gandin anything he wished, and Gandin chose Isolde herself. Mark had little choice but to let Gandin carry her off.

      Tristan (Tristram) followed the pair and tricked Gandin - by playing his harp - into giving Isolde back.

      Gottfried may have taken the name from Wolfram’s character. In the Prose Tristan, this abduction is replaced with one by Palamedes.

    3. Gandin of the Mountain

      A Knight of the Round Table who participated in the Grail Quest.

      His brother was Sir Gandaz the Black.
