Segurant the Brown

Knight of the Dragon
Seguarant, Sigurans

He was the greatest fighter of Uther Pendragon’s Old Table order. The son of Hector the BrownGalehaut the Brown, or Brunor the Brown.

Segurant pursued a dragon from land to land during his career. He finally became king of the country of Abiron. Among his other adventures, he destroyed the Tower of the Copper Marvel and won a tournament at the city of Winchester.

The Lady of the Lake tried to ensure that Lancelot never encountered Segurant. During the Grail Quest, however, when Segurant was 160 years old, he defeated Lancelot and jousted Tristan to a draw. He later died from the wound delivered by Tristan.

His character has an uncertain connection to Seguarades (Segwarides).
