Old


    1. Old Knight
      Presbys Hippotes

      A warrior who, in a Greek poem, Lancelot, Palamedes, Gawain, and Tristan (Tristram) were unable to defeat.

      He is properly called Branor the Brown in Palamedes.


    2. Old Lady

      She hands the keys of the castle Tinaguel (Tintagel) to Lancelot after he has killed the two giants.


    3. Old Table
      Tavola Vecchio

      Italian literature distinguishes between the Tavola Vecchio ('Old Table') and the Tavola Nuovo ('New Table'); that is, the Round Table fellowships commanded by Uther Pendragon and Arthur.

      Utherís Old Table seems to have been composed primarily of strong and crude knights (fifty in all), while Arthurís New Table was known for its justice, courtliness, and virtue.

      Examples of Old Table knights include Abiron, Branor the Brown, and Caradoc the Thirteenth.
