Quick Reference

Europe

For the trouvères, the troubadours of medieval France, Tristan was the ideal lover. They acquired the legend of Tristan and Iseult from Brittany, but its ancestry reaches back through Cornwall, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland to an unknown era. Elopements and wooings were a favourite theme of Celtic mythology.
