Romance of Horn From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Romance of Horn is an Anglo-Norman literature romans d'aventure ("adventure story") tale written around 1170 by an anonymous author named "Thomas". The hero, named Horn, is the son of the king Aälof of Suddene (probably somewhere near Devon). Horn is orphaned after the Saracens kill his parents. He and twelve companions then set sail in a boat only to end up on the shores of Brittany, where he grows to manhood and falls in love with the king's daughter Rymenhild. There he defends the kingdom from invading Saracens, but the king banishes him to Ireland after he wrongfully accused of trying to usurp the throne. In Ireland, Horn again proves his heroism and is offered the hand of the king's daughter. Horn refuses it and after some time returns to Brittany to rescue and marry Rymenhild. The story became the base for one of the earliest Middle English romances King Horn, written around 1225.
