Beiffror

European - The horse of Ogier the Dane. In some accounts Ogier acquired this horse early in his career in battle with the Saracens. When Ogier was imprisoned by Charlemagne, Beiffror was claimed by the Abbot of St Faron. When the horse bolted and threw the abbot, he gave it to his workmen to pull stones being used in the building of a new chapel. Beiffror was reunited with his master when Charlemagne released Ogier to take up a challenge from Bruhier, the Sultan of Arabia. A misdirected sword stroke from the Saracen killed Beiffror. Also identified as Beiffror, Broiefort or Broiefort.
