* ''Literature/TheChronicleOfDukeErik'' reads a bit more closely to UsefulNotes/TheIcelandicSagas, but there's still plenty of CourtlyLove, Single Combat (the refined Jousting kind, not the rough and though Viking ''Holmgang'',) and even some [[Myth/KingArthur Arthurian references.]]

Ones about KingArthur and his knights (the Matter of Britain) are among the best known, but in medieval times, there were also those about Charlemagne (the Matter of France) and AlexanderTheGreat (the Matter of Rome). The association could be rather loose, with tales from UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar falling into the Matter of Rome, and despite the claim that these encompassed all romances, in fact there were "non-cyclical", independent romances, such as the ''Constance'' tales (all with the same basic plot as Creator/GeoffreyChaucer used), and the tales of El Cid Campeador, the national hero of Spain. If the era was earlier, do not expect any resemblence to the actual earlier society; Alexander the Great invariably appeared as a feudal king. This is how King Arthur ended up a KnightInShiningArmor.

* SeriesContinuityError: After the smash success of ''TheSongOfRoland'', Roland had [[ExpansionPackPast a lot more tales told about him]] and his [[CoolSword magical sword Durendal]]. Durendal is completely unbreakable - in ''Song of Roland'', Roland attempts to smash it to pieces on a mountain so the Saracens can't get it, but even that doesn't work. In a poem written later but set earlier than ''Song'', ''The Sultan of Babylon'', Roland breaks Durendal in the middle of a battle by accident.
