Eskilabon the Wild


Duke of Belamunt and the Beautiful Forest.

For the love of the lady Klaretschanze of Portugal – and because of the treachery of Prince Frians of Ponterteis – he was forced to guard a flower garden, and to imprison any knight who picked the flowers or who wanted to marry his sister, Flordiane.

He was eventually defeated by Arthur’s Sir Garel, who freed his prisoners and made Eskilabon swear fealty. Eskilabon then fought alongside Garel in Arthur’s war against King Ekunaver of Kanadic, for which Arthur gave him a seat at the Round Table.
