Lover of the maiden Amoret.

He first saw her when she visited the Fairy Queen’s court. Scudamore braved the dangers of the temple of Venus, Amoret’s guardian, to court her. Britomart, the warrior maiden, found Scudamore lamenting over Amoret, who had been imprisoned by a sorcerer named Busirane. Assisted by Britomart and Arthur, he was re-united with his lover.
