Four entries with the name Yvain.

Son of Morgan Le Fay and King Urien. Knight of the Round Table.

I prefer to separate him from other Yvains by spelling his name Ywaine.


Yvain

A Knight of the Round Table who was the son of King Hervi.

Found in the romance of Yder, he may be identical to the original Yvain, with “Hervi” being a corruption of “Urien.”
