Gerhart of Riviers

A prince who attacked the castle Merkanie because King Tjofabier of Merkanie refused to allow Gerhart to wed Sabie, Tjofabier’s maiden daughter.

In the ensuing battles, he killed Gilbert, Tjofabier’s son. Arthur’s Sir Garel ended the conflict by defeating Gerhart and Rialt, Gerhart’s kinsman. As a condition of Gerhart’s surrender, Garel made him pledge support to Arthur’s war against King Ekunaver of Kanadic.
