Henry Lovelich was an English poet of 15th Century London. His best known work is as the English translator of Robert de Borron's lengthy Arthurian poems, The History of the Holy Grail and The Romance of Merlin.[1] Several of Henry Lovelich's works have been published by the Early English Text Society[2] A modern historian has proposed him to have been the actual author of the chronicle previously ascribed to Gregory of London.[3]
