~ Renowned Household Knight ~
He was the son of an unknown man and an unknown woman. He was unmarried. He has no sons or daughters.
He died in 495 A.D. He was 53 years old.
Sir Sadinal oversaw Uther’s household.
The dapifer is responsible for the ordering of the king’s domestic household. He leads and coordinates all the department heads so that meals are grand, on-time, and plentiful. Clean beds, who sleeps where, proper wall hangings, and laundry are all the dapifer’s domain. A pair of deputy dapifers work in tandem, one tending to royal affairs at the current location, while the other is at the next stop in the King’s Progress, preparing the way.
Sadinal was the primary proponent of a novel idea: knights should bear special arms of their own. The king made up the title of Court Herald to amuse Sadinal and to support his quirky desire, but it did not get any traction outside the Royal court. This went as far as Sheriffs actually punishing people for making up their own shields. No one however, discussed this at court.
Sadinal developed an extreme hatred for the poet Sir Duach who composed a poem of praise about his own heroism at the Battle of Wynchbank, despite the fact that he had actually held back out of combat even after Sir Sadinal lead the charge that allowed Aurelius Ambrosius to escape. Duach’s jaunty ditty was more popular than the drab verses about Sadinal.
Sir Sadinal was tall and stocky with brown eyes. His black hair and full beard echoed his usual darkmood that only seems to brighten when he was discussing heraldry.
He died at the Infamous Feast in 495.
