Day 28: Sir Tristan of Cornwall

Mar 29, 2023

Tristan never got to meet his parents: his father was kidnapped by the fae, and his mother died during childbirth.

Tristan instead was raised by his uncle, King Mark of Cornwall, but he lost the last links to his family when he fell in love with his uncles bride-to-be, Isolde, and they fled King Mark’s court together.

They lived their lives on the run; short, fast and passionate.

King Mark tracked them down, and while Tristan serenaded Isolde with his harp, his uncle murdered them both with his own hands, using a poisoned blade.
