coa-landri.pngThe honorable Sir Landri succeeds in remaining Chaste using his Honor when a lovely Byzantine princess slips naked into his bed:

“Do with me as you please, none shall speak ill of it;
If I die of love, I am sure my soul shall be saved.”
“Lady,” replies Landri, “what are you saying?
Surely you have awakened love in me, presenting yourself thus,
But I know all too well that your father is my lord;
You’d better go back to your own bed, my dear friend.”
—Doon of La Roche, v.2725–2730

Son of Doon of La Roche and Princess Olive of the Franks.

In 761, young Sir Landri decided to go to Byzantium, where Emperor Alexander enlisted him and his men. The Franks fought valiantly in the emperor’s service against the Saracens and Persians.

Princess Salmadrine fell madly in love with Sir Landri. Her imperial father agreed to marry her to the Frank, but only if Landri was proven to be of royal blood. Therefore, he sent two trustworthy knights (one of whom was Sir Grimgast) to Frankland. Princess Salmadrine discretely threatened to castrate them should they return with unpleasant news!

After the envoys returned with Princess Olive’s ring, Emperor Alexander consented to give his daughter’s hand to Landri.
