A stone jutting out from a cliff in Cornwall.
After Tristan was caught by King Mark in Isolde’s chambers, Mark decreed that Tristan be burned at the stake. To avoid this, Tristan asked to be allowed one last prayer in a cliff-side chapel. Once inside, he jumped out the window that overlooked the cliff and would have been killed in the fall had it not been broken by the well-placed stone.
See under Meliodas, King of Lyonesse.
Located north-west of the town of Fowey, near Lostwithiel.
Heading towards the coast of Cornwall is an obelisk-shaped stone monument resting on a circular base. On it is an inscription which is reported to date from the sixth-century. The inscription, although some what difficult to read now, is believed by some to say,
Drustanus lies here, son of Cunomorus.
Tristan the Dwarf
His wife was kidnapped by the evil Estout l’Orgillus of the Castle Fer. He traveled to the Blanche Land to find his famous namesake, and to ask him to help rescue his wife. Tristan agreed, and the two Tristans met Estout and his brothers in combat. They were victorious, but Tristan the Dwarf was killed and Tristan was mortally wounded with a poisoned sword.
His counterpart in a Icelandic version is Tristan the Stranger.
Tristan the Stranger
He had an inflated idea of his own prowess. Seven wicked brothers drove him from his land, but his famous namesake, who was king of Spain, helped him to reclaim it, though he received a mortal wound in the process.
Tristan the Stranger appears as Tristan the Dwarf in other versions of the legend.
Tristan the Younger
Son of Tristan and Isolde (Isoud La Blanche Mains) in Spanish romance as well as the Italian I Due Tristani.
He was born, along with a sister named Isolde, during Tristan and Isolde’s sojourn at the Castle of Tears. He was raised by foster-parents. Mark, who thought him the son of Isolde of the White Hands, crowned him king of Cornwall. Arthur knighted him and gave him his father’s former Round Table seat. He enjoyed the protection of a sorceress named Sergia.
Guinevere and the Queen of the Amazons became infatuated with him, and the latter forced herself upon him with enchantments. He eventually entered the service of King Juan of Castille and married Juan’s daughter, Maria, whom Tristan saved from Moors.
