A dwarf king of Scotland who is sent by three duchesses to Arthur's court to seek adventure. Antelan confronts Parzival, Gawan, and Galleman in combat and easily defeats them. Parzival invites him to stay at Arthur's court but Antelan refuses and returns home.

He is mentioned in an anonymous German narrative, presumably composed at the end of the thirteenth century or beginning of the fourteenth century, and also appears in Alexander und Anteloye.
