    This painting was published as the cover of Huon of the Horn by Andre Norton, Ballantine Books, 1980. Caption: "Huon, Duke of Bordeaux, never suspected that the evil Earl Amaury was busily plotting his downfall. So the young duke fell easily into Amaury's trap - tricked into slaying the Emperor Charlemagne's only son. The earl fed Charlemagne's wrath with lies, and the bewildered Huon found himself exiled from France. His only chance for redemption lay in the completion of four impossible tasks in the land of the deadly Saracens- a quest doomed to failure."
