Alyne, Elaine

The beautiful, golden-haired daughter of King Pellinore and the Lady of the Rule, Eleine killed herself with the sword of her lover Sir Miles after he was treacherously slain by Loraine le Savage.

The tragedy was compounded in that Pellinore himself passed by before Miles’ actual death, and Eleine appealed to him, but he was in eager pursuit of another quest – the rescue of Nimue – and did not stop to help them.

Only after finding them both dead on his return, all of Eleine eaten by lions except for the head, did Pellinore learn that she was his own daughter.
