Tristan, one of the three heralds of Britain, also one of the three diademed chiefs, and one of the three knights who had the conducting of mysteries.
   And the tale told by the Cymric race in Cambria and Armorica has resounded throughout southern Europe.  There the mighty swineherd is the son of Roland and Blanchefleur, sister of Mark, king of Cornwall.  Almost at the moment of his birth, she hears the tidings of his father's death, and expires from the shock, calling her babe Tristan...
