Is there a direct refererence to the Alans in the Arthurian Cycle?

The Bretons are alluded to in several ways in the much later Robin Hood story.  In a 17th century ballad about Robin Hood (Child Ballad 138) there is the character "Alan-a-Dale".

^Disproven.  Genghis Khan's DNA y choromosome is documented and well studied.  It belongs to Haplogroup C (most often found in Asians).  I highly doubt the Alan ancestry myth.
