Roland was born when his parents, Princess Bertha and Count Milo of Aiglent, were living in exile. Once accepted back at court, Roland becomes Charlemagne’s favorite nephew.
Roland suffers from moments of “divine fury,” which mark him as a Chosen One benefiting from both royal and divine protection. This manifests itself by epileptic fits, followed by an outburst of blind violence. Afterwards, Roland is incapable of moving for several hours.
Despite his numerous good qualities, Roland’s has two great character flaws: his excessive pride and his irresponsible recklessness.
