Duke of Almayne
Matan, Mathan de Soane, Mathan de Soaue; Mathem dus d’Alemaigne, Mathan de Soane
Duke of Soane in Germany.
Almayne is an archaic spelling of Allemagne, which is the French word for Germany. In the context of Arthurian legends, Almayne is sometimes used to refer to the lands and people of Germany. There is no indication that Almayne was a duchy or any other specific political entity in the Arthurian legends.
