Aymon, Duke of Dordogne and Prince of the Ardennes, was one of Charlemagne's vassals and the father of four sons renowned in chivalrous legends, viz. Renaud de Montauban, Guichard, Alard, and Richardet. The elder is immortalised in the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, and their story is also told by Froissart. There exists also a curious French romance, L'Histoire des quatre fils d' Aymon, attributed to Hugo de Villeneuve, a troubadour of the thirteenth century, which was translated and reprinted by Caxton.
