Knight with the Eagle

An Arthurian knight who is the hero of a German romance bearing his name.

The son of King Paldriot of Lendrie, he was abducted as a youth and raised by a series of creatures, including a hag named Lesbia, a sea monster, and Arthur’s uncle Yttra. He became known as the Knight with the Eagle after he saved an eagle from a vulture and it became his loyal companion.

Finally arriving at Arthur’s court, he helped the king save Queen Ysope from a heathen attacker named Marroch. He eventually discovered his paternity, married the lady Dulceflur, and became heir to the kingdom of Lendrie.
