Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia



Son of Sir Bernard of Escalot (Bernard of Astolat) and brother of Lavaine and Elaine.

As Tirre was badly wounded on the day of his knighting, Bernard loaned Tirre’s shield to Lancelot to use in a tournament at Camelot. Tirre became angry at Lancelot when Lancelot rejected Elaine’s love.
