Ettard

British - A damsel loved by Pelleas. She organised a great tournament at which 500 knights competed and the champion, Pelleas, fell hopelessly in love with her. She rejected his suit and was seduced by Gawain, at which the dejected Pelleas came near to death from unrequited love. He was saved by Nimue who, by magic, made Ettard fall in love with Pelleas - too late. She also put a spell on Pelleas who now rejected the lady who had previously rejected him. In some versions, Pelleas married Nimue. Also identified as Ettard, Ettarde or Ettarde.
