Priamus of Tuscany


A Saracen knight of Tuscany, descended from Alexander, Hector, Joshua, and Macabeus, he was the right inheritor of Alexandria and Africa, and all the out isles.

In Arthur’s war against Emperor Lucius, the Saracens were allied of Rome, and Gawaine encountered and fought Sir Priamus in Italy. They wounded each other almost to death, but luckily Priamus had a balm which healed their wounds within an hour; this same balm was the only thing that could cure a wound from Priamus’ sword.

Priamus eagerly converted to Christianity, became a companion of the Round Table, and was made Duke of Lorraine. He was among those killed when Lancelot rescued Guenevere from the stake.
