European - Son of Amadis and Oriana. Father of Lisuarte. When Esplandian's grandfather, Lisuarte, was imprisoned by the enchanter, Archalaus, Urganda took Esplandian from Firm island in her magic boat, Green Serpent. He found himself on a rocky island where, with a marvellous sword he found embedded in a temple wall, he killed a huge dragon. A dumb sailor took him by sea to another country where Archalous lived in a castle on Forbidden Mountain. At the gate of the castle, Esplandian killed the giant Argantes and, inside, he fought and killed not only Archalaus but his nephews Furion and Matroco. Their mother, Arcabone, threw herself to her death from the castle walls and Lisuarte was freed. Also called Esplandian.
