Amylion, Amylyon

An island of fairies west of Britain; home of the fairy lover of Sir Landevale and Sir Lambewell (versions of Lanval) in their respective Middle English romances.

The name is probably a variation of Avalon, used by Marie de France in her version of Launfal’s story. In Thomas Chestre’s tale of Lanfal, the island is known as Oléron.

Sir Landeval | Early to mid 14th century
Sir Lambewell | 16th century
