Sir Lancelot is a student at Worcestershire Academy. He is a typical jock, being both popular and handsome as well as the captain of the school's jousting team (who appear in the Shrek the Third video game ). Shrek first sees Lancelot practicing his jousting skills on another student who is sent flying by Lancelot's charge.
Lancelot is based off of the Arthurian legend's Lancelot du Lac of Camelot, one of King Arthur's knights and the lover of Guinevere.
According to the legend, he is the most trusted knight of King Arthur and was also responsible for Arthur's downfall for his affair with Guinevere.
In the Shrek, there is a sign in the parking lot outside Duloc that reads: "you are parked in Lancelot". This may imply Lancelot may be from Duloc, but is more likely just a parody of parking lots with themed "you are parked in..." signage.

Though the Duloc Guards wear suits of armor, they are never referred to as knights by other characters.
