Boudwin’s Doublet and Shirt

Boudwin was murdered by his brother, King Mark. Boudwin’s widow Anglides kept the bloody garments to give her son Alisander when he grew up and was of an age to think about avenging his father.

This is similar to Sir La Cote Male Taile’s wearing the coat in which his father was murdered until he could avenge that deed.
