Galaor was a wandering knight and the servant of noble causes, and as such, considered to be amongst the most virtuous men of the European Middle Ages. Along with his brother Amadis, the Knight of the Green Sword, he won many battles against the Roman empire. When he was not fighting, this brave warrior was wooing Princess Briolania, who became his bride. He also enjoyed the refinements of Sobradin Castle, with its sweet delicacies and the scent of incense. Sometimes, he took part in celebrations where Urganda the sorceress would make offerings of enchanting balms.
