The location of a tournament sponsored by the Lady Noauz and the Lady of Pomelegoi.

Lancelot, imprisoned by Meleagant, learned that Queen Guinevere would be at the tournament. He convinced one of Meleagant’s servants to let him out of the prison – with the promise that he would return to the prison when the tournament was over. Lancelot won the tournament, to the delight of Guinevere, and kept his promise to return.

I should assume Noauz to be composed of castle, town, and the lands thereto pertaining, and to lie within reasonable traveling distance of Gore. Also because of the name similarity, I should not be surprised if Noauz and Nohaut were the same territory.
