In this second volume, Prince Valiant helps his father reclaim his throne in kingdom of Thule, fights alongside King Arthur, and is made a knight of the Round Table in recompense for his bravery and wit. Bored by the peace he helped to create, Val decides to battle the Huns.
When Val’s army breaches the Huns’ stronghold, he discovers that corruption reigns in Rome. Thus Val sets off with Sir Gawain and Tristam of Arthurian legend, and the fellowship of the trio sees them through false imprisonment and daring escapes. By the end of this volume, they go their separate ways, and Val boards a ship to Sicily — yet a storm approaches, throwing him off-course, as adventure follows him everywhere.
