CLAUDAS.  Arthurian.  The name of a Frank king.  It is a form of Latin Claudus (q.v.), from the vocabulary word claudus, meaning "lame. 

... King Arthur was at Cardoil, and so were his knights together with him.  He thought to be assured in his kingdom and to live peaceably; but what time he sate at meat one day in Cardoil, behold you thereupon a knight that cometh before the Table Round without saluting him.  "Sir," saith he, "Where is Lancelot?"  "Sir," saith the King to the knight, "He is not in this country."  "By my head," saith the knight, "that misliketh me.  Wheresoever he be, he is your knight and of your household; wherefore King Claudas sendeth you word that he is his mortal enemy, and you also, if so be that for love of him you receive him from this day forward, for he hath slain his sister's son, Meliant of the Waste Manor, and he slew the father of Meliant likewise, but the father belongeth not to King Claudas... (The High History of the Holy Graal, Evans-Gollancz, 1921)
