Anseïs gives his steed the rein, and charges

Fierce on Turgis de Turteluse; beneath

The golden boss asunder breaks the shield,

Rips up the hauberk double-linked; so true

The thrust, that all the steel passed through his breast.

With this one blow the shaft has struck him dead.

Rollánd exclaimed: "The stroke is of a Knight!"
