Excerpt from The Knight of the Lion Translated and Adapted From the French, of Chretien De Troyes
The story of the sources of the Chevalier an lion, literally, The Knight with the Lion, is long, uncertain, and fascinating, but it need not detain us here except in one feature: Chretien's romance is closely paralleled by the story of Owain or The Lady of the Fountain in the collection of the Welsh Mabinogion, translated into English by Lady Charlotte Guest. Their relationship is not yet fully established, but the most likely suppo sitiou is that they are independent versions going back to a common, non-extant original.
