Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


Penefrec, Penefred, Pointurie

A rich island castle – strong and well placed – in King Guivret’s Ireland, according to Hartmann von Aue. Guivret’s sisters, Filledamor and Guenteflur, were able to enjoy an idyllic existence here.

It’s located near the land of Count Oringle of Limors. It corresponds with Pointurie, found in Chrétien de Troyes.

Erec enjoyed a hospitable stay in Penefrec, which was characterized by abundant surrounding lakes, a well-stocked game preserve, and the best hunting dogs.
