Tryʹanon

.

Daughter of the fairy king who lived on the island of Oléron. “She was as white as lily in May,” and married Sir Launfal, King Arthur’s steward, whom she carried off to “Oliroun her jolif isle,” and, as the romance says—

“Since saw him in this land no man,

Ne no more of him tell I nʹcan

For soothë without lie.”


Thomas Chestre: Sir Launfal (15th century).
