Trivia Edit

  • This relic is a reference to the medieval legend of the tragic lovers, Tristan and Iseult (Tristan and Isolde). Tristan (Latin & Brythonic: Drustanus; Welsh: Trystan), also known as Tristram, was a Cornish knight in the service of his uncle, King Mark. Mark was betrothed to the princess of Ireland, the beautiful Iseult. As his most trusted knight, Tristan was sent to Ireland by Mark to bring Iseult to Cornwall to marry the king. To aid Iseult in her marriage, in her possession was a powerful love potion. Unfortunately, during a feast Tristan and Iseult accidentally consume the love potion and fall helplessly in love. The two become lovers, even after they arrive in Cornwall and Mark marries Iseult; they use trickery to fool Mark into believing nothing is going on. There are many variations of the legend's ending, but the more well-known ending, Mark finds out about the affair and tries to punish the couple, though Tristan escapes death by hanging and rescues Iseult from exile. He returns Iseult to Mark, then reconciles with the king by agreeing to leave Cornwall. Years later, Tristan is wounded by a poisoned spear and sends for Iseult to heal him. He requests that the sailor sent for her raise white sails if Iseult will come help him, and black sails if she refuses. Unable to rise, Tristan asks his wife what color the sails are, but the jealous woman lies to him, saying the sails are black. Tristan dies of grief, and when Iseult arrives and sees his corpse, she too drops dead of grief.
