In all the lands of Arthur's Britain no knight could outshine Tristan of Lyonnesse. Fierce in battle, gentle on the strings of a harp, unequaled in the hunt, notorious in Tintagel's bedrooms, he seemed bound for a glorious destiny--and found it in the court of his uncle, King Mark, who named him heir to the throne of Cornwall. For Mark, Tristan risked his life in blood combat with the dread Morholt. For Mark, Tristan journeyed to the sorcery-ridden land of Ireland to kill a dragon and win Mark a bride. Tristan loved his king but he loved his king's wife more.
