Lancelot was the son of King Ban of Benwick, one of the young King Arthur's staunchest supporters, and his queen, Elaine. King Ban became involved in a war with the neighbouring kingdom of King Claudus. Claudus defeated Ban and forced the king and queen to flee.

As they were fleeing, Ban looked back and the sight of his home in flames caused him to fall in a swoon from which he never rose. Running to his aid, Elaine left Lancelot beside a lake and the Lady of the Lake stole the child away and raised him in her underwater palace where he was known as Lancelot of the Lake.
