by Micha F. Lindemans
A Knight of the Round Table. In the Vulgate Cycle he is slain by Mordred in the battle between Mordred and Arthur. The Vulgate also mentions Sagremor as the nephew of the Emperor of Constantinople and that he has an illness that attacks him without warning, causing Kay to call him le mort jeune ("the young corpse").

In the prose Tristan, he is Tristan's messenger who brings his shield and sword when Tristan is dying. He is furthermore mentioned in Chrétien de Troyes Perceval, Froissart's Meliador, and Tennyson's Idylls of the King.
