ROBERT DE BORON
Robert de Boron (also spelled in the manuscripts "Roberz", "Borron", "Bouron", "Beron") was a French poet of the late 12th and early 13th centuries, who is most notable as the reputed author of the poems Joseph d'Arimathie [fr] and Merlin. Although little is known of him apart from the poems he allegedly wrote, his works and their subsequent prose redactions had a strong influence on later incarnations of the Arthurian legend and its prose cycles, particularly due to their Christian back story for the Holy Grail.
