Fell deeds and dark ruin await those who dare to face the son of Gilles le Breton!
Louen Leoncoeur is the greatest leader of the Bretonnians since Gilles the Uniter. A mighty warrior-king, his subjects know well that he is the pinnacle of Knightly perfection and honour. Highly skilled on the field of battle and a master of tactics and strategy, Louen has never known defeat. Commoners and nobles alike speak his name with the same reverence, likening Louen to the mighty Companions of Gilles from ages past; some even say that the blood of Gilles runs in his veins. As ferocious yet honourable in diplomacy as he is in war, King Louen the "Lionhearted" is renowned far beyond the borders and Bretonnia itself, and respected by all. After more than twenty glorious years on the throne, Louen still appears to be in the prime of his life, though scholars whisper that he is close to his ninetieth year. It is said that he intends to turn his attentions to cursed Mousillon, cleansing it of taint and restoring its former glory. If Louen does this, the lands of Bretonnia will be united under his banner once and for all.

|The Lion's Shield||
King Louen’s shield has protected him from the first days of his Knighthood; strengthened by enchantment, it will continue to do so.
Such is the power and ferocity of the champion, that those who stand in his way will falter against the warrior's impact.
There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
|Stand Your Ground!||
On the battlefield, the craven's path is an easy one, but for those champions that choose to stand? Fortune will surely favour them and their troops.
|Beloved Son of Bretonnia||
Should the Royarch of fair Bretonnia fall, then the anger in its Knights and smallfolk shall be fierce.
|The Blessing of the Lady||
The Lady's blessing is a wondrous gift freely graced upon all Bretonnian subjects, should they but kneel and utter their devotion.

Those that claim the honour of the Lady's Champion benefit from her protection even more than Knights who have supped from the Grail.
