Castle Orguelleus

Castle Bamburgh in Northumberland, also called the Castle Orguelleus.

Cador of Northumberland held a tournament at Banborc to find a husband for his daughter, Andrivete. Kay distinguished himself in the tournament but was afraid to confess his love for the maiden. When Cador died and his brother, Ayglin, tried to marry Andrivete to a commoner, Kay returned and besieged Banborc to rescue her.
