Penelva

A knight whose adventures and exploits form a supplemental part of the Spanish romance entitled Amadis of Gaul. The first four books of the romance, and the part above referred to, were by Portuguese authors- the former by Vasco de Lobeira, of Oporto, who died 1403; the latter by an unknown author.
