RYENCE.  Arthurian.  A giant king and enemy to Arthur.  It is a variant spelling of Welsh Rhyence (q.v.), probably meaning "warrior."  Also see Rience, and Rion.

    Now while the King sat thus at feast lo! there came an herald-messenger from the west-country.  And the herald came and stood before the King, and said: "Greeting to thee, King Arthur!"
    Then the King said: "Speak, and tell me, what is thy message?"
    To which the herald made reply: "I come from King Leodegrance of Cameliard, who is in sore trouble.  For thus it is:  His enemy and thine of thee commanded thee to send him thy beard for to trim his mantle), doth make sundry demands of my master, King Leodegrance, which demands King Leodegrance is altogether loath to fulfil.  And King Ryence of North Wales threateneth to bring war into Camliard because King Leodegrance doth not immediatley fulfil those demands...
