Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


A giant and pagan king who ruled the ancient city of Sarras in Arthur’s time, according to the Prophécies de Merlin. He had attained his eminence by killing the previous ruler. The folk of Sarras would not desert him, even when the city was menaced by Crusaders under King Richard of Jerusalem.

He defeated four champions of the Crusaders and after this a truce ensued, followed a month later by Alchendic’s baptism.
