Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


A nephew of King Faramon of France in La Tavola Ritonda.

He was accused of theft at the same time that Faramon’s daughter, Belide, falsely accused Tristan of rape. Faramon offered Belide a choice of saving either Brano or Tristan; when she chose Tristan, he knew she was lying about the crime.

The same character is named Meliant in the Prose Tristan.
