3 L'aventure d'un autre lai, Cum ele avient, vus cunterai: Fait fu d'un mut gentil vassal; En bretans l'apelent Lanval. A Kardoel surjurnot li reis, Artur, le pruz et li curteis, Pur les Escoz e pur les Pis, Que destruieient le païs; En la tere de Loengre entroënt E mut suvent la damagoënt. A la pentecuste en esté I aveit li reis sujurné. Asez i duna riches duns: E as cuntes e as baruns, A ceus de la table roünde-- N'ot tant de teus en tut le munde. Femmes e tere departi, Par tut, fors un qui l'ot servi: Ceo fut Lanval, ne l'en sovient, Ne nul des soens bien ne li tient.

4 The adventure of another lay, Just as it happened, I'll relay: It tells of a very nice nobleman, And it's called Lanval in Breton. King Arthur was staying at Carduel-- That King of valiant and courtly estate-- His borders there he guarded well Against the Pict, against the Scot, Who'd cross into Logres to devastate The countryside often, and a lot. He held court there at Pentecost, The summer feast we call Whitsun, Giving gifts of impressive cost To every count and each baron And all knights of the Round Table. Never elsewhere so many, such able Knights assembled! Women and land He shared out with generous hand To all but one who'd served. Lanval He forgot: no man helped his recall. The opening lines of Lanval in Anglo-Norman
