Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


A knight slain by Tristan in La Tavola Ritonda.

Crausen and Lamorat visited King Mark’s court, made fun of the Cornish knights, and defeated them all in combat. To avenge Cornwall’s shame, Tristan armed himself and jousted with the two knights, killing Crausen.

In the Prose Tristan, Crausen’s place is occupied by Driant.
