European - A courtier at Charlemagne's court. He became jealous of Amiles and Amis when they found favour at the court and denounced Amiles as the lover of the king's daughter, Belisent, requiring Amiles to meet him in single combat to prove his innocence. Amis took his friend's place and killed Arderik but was afflicted with leprosy as punishment for the deception. Also commonly called Arderik, Ardericus or Ardericus.
