Nampetenis

Nampentenis


Tristanís slayer in Eilhart von Obergeís Tristrant.

He fought for Count Riole of Nantes in a war against King Havelin (Tristanís father-in-law). Havelinís son Kahedins fell in love with Nampetenisís wife, Gariole.

One day, while Nampetenis was out hunting, Kahedins - with Tristanís help - sneaked into Nampetenisís stronghold and enjoyed a pleasant afternoon with Gariole. When Nampetenis found out, he chased after the two warriors with a squad of knights, killed Kahedins, and mortally wounded Tristan with a poisoned blade.

He may be the same character as Gottfriedís Nautenis.
