Gennewis

Genewis


The kingdom belonging to Pant (Ban), Lancelotís father, in Ulrichís Lanzelet. He married Clarine, the mother of Lancelot in a Germanic version of the latter's story.

Although identification with Gwynedd in Wales and Guenet in Brittany have been suggested, it is most likely a variation of Benoic (Benwick), Banís traditional kingdom in other Lancelot stories. It may have influenced Der Pleierís Gamvis (Ganves).
