Isenhart of Azagouc

Saracen lord from the Middle East or Africa who loved Belacane, Queen of Zazamanc. She did not reciprocate his love, and he died in a battle against one of her princes.

In revenge, Isenhart’s allies and friends – led by his cousin Vridebrant of Scotland – attacked and besieged Belacane’s kingdom. Belacane was saved by Perceval’s father Gahmuret, who assumed the throne of Isenhart’s former kingdoms.

Isenhart’s father’s name was Tankanis.
