Enide’s Cousin

When Enide was about to leave Lalut with her affianced husband Erec, another niece of the count’s, a maid of talent, prudence, and intelligence, wanted to give her a fine dress as a going-away present. Erec, however, preferred bringing his betrothed to court in her ragged old white dress in order to have Guenevere give her fine apparel.

So, instead, the cousin gave her finest dappled palfrey to her cousin. This was almost certainly the same horse that later served Enide so well during her enforced adventures following Erec.
