Ameraudur meant a war leader who was chosen for love, not bloodline. Ameraudur meant that the man who called you this would give his own life before he saw yours fall. It was a word that the Welsh had used for Arthur, yes, that Arthur. It was a term that some of my father’s men had used for him. I didn’t know what to say because I hadn’t done enough to deserve the title. Not yet.
