IBLIS.  fArthurian.  A fairy.  Lanzelet's wife in Ulrich von Zatzikhoven's Lanzelet

... Sir Lancelot reconquers his kingdom, and, with his wife Iblis, reigns over it in peace, both living to see their children's children, and dying on the same day, in good old fairy-tale fashion.  In fact, the whole of the Lanzelet has much more the character of a fairy or folk-tale than that of a knightly romance. (Encyclopedia Britannica, v.16, 1911)

IBLIS.  m. Arabic name meaning "despair."  It is another name for the jinnee Azazel.

... When Adam was created, and God commanded all to worship him, Azazel insolently made answer, "Me hast Thou created of fire, and him of earth: why should I worship him?"  Whereupon God changed the jinnee into a devil, and called him Iblis or Despair.  In hell he was made the standard-bearer of Satan's host. (The Reader's Handbook of Famous Names in Fiction, Allusions, &c., Brewer, 1899)
