A kingdom in Arabia or Africa.

It was ruled by Queen Belacane, who was loved by Isenhart. When Isenhart died in a battle for Belacane’s love, Isenhart’s allies attacked and besieged Zazamanc.

Zazamanc was saved by the arrival of Perceval’s father, Gahmuret, who beat back the attackers and married Belacane, assuming control of the kingdom. It later fell to Gahmuret’s other son, Feirefiz, who gave it to Perceval as a gift.
