  Lancelot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lancelot, however, is not an original member of the cycle, and the development of his story is still a source of considerable disagreement between scholars.
The Lancelot story, in its rise and development, belongs exclusively to the later stage of Arthurian romance; it was a story for the court, not for the folk, and it lacks alike the dramatic force and human appeal of the genuine popular tale.
Lancelot is driven mad by remorse, and lives as a wild man (again, like Tristan, who temporarily suffered from amnesia) during the quest for the Grail.

While Lancelot is the guest of the Grail-keeper Pelles, Pelles contrives magically to have the knight sleep with his daughter Elaine in the guise of the Queen, whom he has led Lancelot to believe is in the area.
Lancelot sleeps with Elaine and the result of their union is Galahad, the chosen Grail-knight.

 Lancelot, the Knight of the Cart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lancelot, the Knight of the Cart (French: Lancelot, le Chevalier de la Charrette) is an Old French poem by Chrétien de Troyes.
The action centers on Lancelot's rescue of the queen after she has been abducted by Meleagant.
There is reason to believe the adultery of Lancelot and Guinevere was invented wholecloth by Chrétien for the poem, but it is possible he found the episode already in whatever source material Marie provided him.

 Sir Lancelot (Launcelot)
Lancelot was forced to defend her honour a second time, when Méléagant later accused her of an affair with Kay, and once again Bagdemagus successfully pleaded for his son.
Lancelot finally slew Méléagant in combat at King Arthur's court, and his literary reputation as chivalric hero and arch-exemplar of 'saver-of-damsels-from-distress' was sealed.
Lancelot, in particular, appears to symbolise on the one hand - in his innocence - the achievement of a certain kind of order, and on the other - in his ultimate sufferings - the tragic real-world truth that all good things come to an end.

Lancelot came upon a (nameless) damsel who knew what had happened to the Queen, what road to take to find her, and something about the hazards along the way.
Then Lancelot asserts that, with the Queen's consent, he will come inside to be with her, and that the bars cannot keep him out.

Lancelot is, of course, the premire knight in the court of King Arthur.

In Lancelot du Lac, Lancelot is actually knighted by Guinevere; the lovers are brought together by the knight Galehot, and on the night they first sleep together, the pieces of a split shield given Lancelot by the Lady of the Lake miraculously unite.
Lancelot often travels in disguise and in several versions of the story spends his early years ignorant of his rightful name (in Lancelot du Lac, he is called "King's Son"), until he learns it through various adventures.
According to Malory, after Lancelot dies, his corpse is kept aloft for two weeks (or possibly a month) but maintains its sweet smell, exuding the odor of sanctity more often associated with saints.

Also, Lancelot did have a wife at one point, but Galahad was not legitimately born and was his bastard son, conceived with a princess living as a nun who helped "tend his wounds" while he healed in the nunnery.

His main character, Lancelot, is the sole speaker in the book, the entire novel a refraction of his recovering memory, shattered by the horrific murders he committed as a reaction to the decaying morality and facile values here amplified by a Hollywood film crew and his adulterous wife.
Lancelot is a departure from Percy's typical protagonist, not because he is some crazy, libidinal loner who concocts an apocalyptic scheme to prove some cosmic point (because all of Percy's protagonists fit that bill), but because he isn't particularly funny.
Lancelot lacks the sense that the world is bigger than himself, and is so serious that he rarely cracks a joke.
