Duke Aymon

Duke Aymon of Dordone is a character in the Old French Matter of France, appearing in chansons de geste and Italian romance epics depicting the adventures of Charlemagne and his knights. The son of Doon de Mayence, he is the Duke of Dordone (sometimes associated with Dordogne) and the father of four sons, Renaud (Reinold, Rinaldo), Guichard, Alard, and Richard (Ricciardo), who were part of the tale Les Quatre Fils Aymon or The Four Sons of Aymon.

Aymon is also a character in Orlando Furioso, along with his children Rinaldo, Alard, Ricciardo, and the female warrior Bradamante.
