All those warriors, barons and dukes and counts and kings, remained there watching her, dumbfounded. Meanwhile, the girl began to speak.
She said that her name was Angelica; with her brother she had come a long way to this great tournament of champions, in order to honor king Carlo and his beautiful kingdom. But she had also come because her brother wanted to win fame for himself and a reputation among the champions, challenging them one by one to a duel at a place called Pine Fount.
"And he who comes to do battle with my brother," said the girl, "and succeeds in throwing him off his horse, will have me as the victor's prize. He, on the other hand, who is thrown to the ground by my brother will have to give himself over to us as the vanquished and a prisoner."
