Today’s story is about Knight Geraint, an irresponsible lover, who takes his wife, Lady Enid, on a long perilous quest to prove he is the grand warrior (her Night in Shining Armor) still worthy of her admiration. Told in the first person with a point of view from Lady Enid, who is the daughter of Earl Ynywl, and wife to Lord Geraint from the Arthurian Court. (added later). This is an ancient tale and versions cross between Wales and France - Brittany, a classic! Maybe a bit of Germanic influence included. Stories did cross with the traders, the troubadours, which rode in the trading routes.
