This chapter discusses Sir Ysumbras, which was popular and widely read. The poem belongs to two distinct and clearly defined groups. The first group is that of the versions of the Legend of St. Eustace, while the second is a group of romances. One of the long-standing debates regarding this poem is whether Sir Ysumbras should be considered primarily as a member of the first or the second group.
