Lindesores


A castle in the forest of Broceliande, ruled by King Belinant of South Wales in the Vulgate Merlin. During the Saxon invasions, the various northern kings rallied their forces at Lindesores. In the Third Continuation of Chrétien’s PercevalPerceval arrives at Lindesores in a magical boat and fights the vassal of the castle’s lord, Mendandre de la Loge, who tries to make him pay a toll.

In Raoul de Houdenc’s Meraugis de Portlesguez, it is the site of a sparrowhawk tournament in which Meraugis of Portlesguez and Gorvain Cadrut both fall in love with the Lady Lidoine.
