LYONESSE.  Arthurian legend name, meaning "land of the lioness."  Also see Lyones.

    Lionesse, Lyonesse, or Lionés, a tract of land between Land's End and the Seilly Isles, now submerged "full forty fathoms under water."  It formed a part of Cornwall.  Thus Sir Tristram de Liones is always called a Cornish knight.  When asked his name, he tells Sir Kay that he is Sir Tristram de Liones; to which the seneschal answers, "Yet heard I never in no place that any good knight came out of Cornwall."—Sir T.
