Parallels have been drawn between The Mabinogion’s  ‘The Lady of the Well’ and Chrétien de Troyes’ 12th century poem Yvain, le Chevalier au Lion (‘Yvain, the Knight with the Lion'), although (as noted in the case of ‘Peredur fab Efrog’ and ‘Perceval’), the nature of the relationship between the two is not entirely clear.
