    Gulistante

    Lancelot's uncle. Tristan appointed him viceroy of Joyous Gard. He was slain when King Mark of Cornwall besieged Joyous Gard to reclaim Isolde from Tristan.


  2. Golistant the Strong
    Gulistante

    A son of Marhaus, the daughter of King Anguish of Ireland and the brother of Amoroldo. He appears in Palamedes and the Prose Tristan.

    His father was killed by Tristan. He became the squire of Sir Segurant the Brown and was knighted at his masterís hand. Golistant fell in love with a maiden at the Castle of Maidens and besieged the castle when she rebuked him. Guiron the Courteous, the maidenís cousin, defeated Golistant in combat, and Golistant died of wounds he received in the fight.

    The Italian La Tavola Ritonda gives a different account of his life, saying that Tristan knighted him and changed his name to Amoroldo.
