Lidoine

  1. Lidoine of Germany

    Daughter of Emperor Henry of Germany, sister of Sir Laris, and cousin of Arthur, in Claris et Laris.

    She married the ageing King Ladon of Gascony, but she was loved by Claris, Laris’s friend. When Ladon died, King Savari of Spain tried to force her into marriage by invading her lands and capturing her, but Claris rescued her, and Claris and Lidoine were wed.

  2. Lidoine of Escavalon

    The beautiful daughter of the King of Escavalon, loved by two of Arthur’s knights: Meraugis of Portlesguez and Gorvain Cadrut. The former loved her for her personality, and the latter for her beauty.

    At the tournament of LindesoresGuinevere ruled that Meraugis had the better claim to her. At Lidoine’s command, Meraugis then embarked on a series of adventures, accompanied by Lidoine, to prove himself worthy of her. They eventually became separated, and Meraugis was believed to have been killed. Lord Belchis tried to force her into marriage with Espinogres, his son, but Meraugis showed up in time to prevent the marriage and to claim Lidoine as his own.
