emperor of Byzantium, Alexander, and his consort Tantalis had two sons,
Alexander and Alis, (Alexius). The elder had heard of Arthur and
the Round Table, and would receive the stroke of knighthood from no one
else. With great difficulty he obtains from his father permission
to go to Europe,—even the assurance of abdication in his favor will
not keep him back. Loaded with treasure and with the admonitions
of his father above all to practice liberality, Alexander, accompanied
by a crowd of young men of his own age, takes leave of parents and home,
and pushes out into the sea. The passage lasts all of April and
part of May. They land in Southhampton (au port desoz Hautone),
and proceed the next day to Winchester (Guincestre), where Arthur holds
his court. They present themselves before the king and are
received with honour (45-384). Alexander makes the acquaintance of
Gauvain and wins all hearts by his liberality. Soon after this
Arthur wishes to go over to Brittany (Armorica), and, on the advice of
his men, names Count Engrès, of Windsor (Guinesores), as regent of
England (384-440). Alexander accompanies the king in whose ship he
crosses with the queen and the maid of honour Soredamors, the sister of
Gauvain, to whom up to this time the subject of love has been
repugnant. Cupid revenges himself upon Soredamors, who falls
violently in love with Alexander and breaks out in moving
lamentations... (The University Magazine, v.5, 1891)
