Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


The tyrannical king of Genewis, named in Ulrich von Zatzikhoven’s Lanzelet as Lancelot’s father. He was overthrown and killed by his own nobles during a rebellion.

Pant is manifestly a corruption of Ban, the name traditionally given to Lancelot’s father.

Pant means a low place, a hollow, in Welsh, similar to a glen.
