    Not many of the sources I've ever read or seen say. But in a couple of them I've heard he was raised by the Lady of the Lake. And in the Mists of Avalon, the Lady of the Lake was indeed his mother. So she gets my vote.

    I said "other". I don't know who it was, but it wasn't any of the ones mentioned in any of the versions I've read.

    Since his name is Lancelot du Loc (of the lake) you have to go with "Lady" of the Lake being his mother.
