A Giant from the times of King Arthur. It was prophesised by Merlin that a Giant would kill to take the throne of Sarras. Curiously after ascending to the throne, he ruled peacefully. King Richard of Jerusalem then laid siege to Sarras and the people there backed their ruler Alchendic. After Alchendic defeated many Crusader champions, King Richard settled for peace on the terms that Alchendic be baptized. The Giant converted to Christianity and peace was brought to Sarras.
Alchendic has been viewed 1858 times.
