Taulurd


A giant who plagued the lands of Earl Fergus.

Sir Marhaus, a Knight of the Round Table, agreed to deal with the monster. When Taulurd nearly killed Marhaus in combat, Marhaus changed his tactics and fled. Following Marhaus into a river, Taulurd became stuck in the mire. Marhaus stood on the shore with Fergusís men and threw stones at Taulurdís head until the giant died. Marhaus liberated prisoners from Taulurdís castle and made off with a large amount of treasure.

Taulurdís brother, Taulas, was later killed by Tristan (Tristram).
