BOHORT.  Arthurian.  A knight of the Round Table.  Brother of King Ban, and uncle to Lancelot du Lac.  Also see Bors. (An Explanatory and Pronouncing Dictionary of the Noted Names of Fiction, Wheeler, 1898)

... Sir Bohort prepared to rescue his brother.  But he looked on the other side of him, and saw a knight dragging along a fair gentlewoman, who cried out, "Saint Mary! succor your maid!"  And when she saw Sir Bohort she called to him and said, "By the faith that ye owe to knighthood, help me!"  When Sir Bohort heard her say thus, he had such sorrow that he wist what to do.  "For if I let my brother be, he must be slain, and that would I not for all the earth; and if I help not the maid, I am shamed for ever."... (Age of Chivalry, Bulfinch, 1900)
