A royal squire named Richard [=Fitzwilliam=] happens to turn at the right moment to see the helmsman leap at Morgan, and he throws himself between them while shouting a warning. Richard takes the dagger in his side, and he asks to be allowed to swear the oath of fealty so he can die as Morgan's liege man. Morgan grants his request, and Richard just manages to recite it before he dies. The assassin had taken poison himself before attacking, and [[DefiantToTheEnd he defiantly resists Morgan's questioning until he also dies]]. Morgan gives orders to have Richard's body buried with full honours at his capital Coroth, while the assassin's remains are dumped overboard.
