Florent of France

An Arthurian knight from France who participated in the Roman War.

During a mission to procure supplies in northern Italy, Florent and Gawaine learned of a nearby Roman brigade, led by the Duke of Lorraine. With only a small force of seven hundred, Gawaine and Florent managed to rout the Romans, who numbered in the thousands.

Florent also led a battalion at the final battle at Soissons and owned a horse named Fawnell.
