Leon

(in Orlando Furioso), son of Constantine, the Greek emperor, is promised Bradamant in marriage by her parents. Amon and Beatrice; but Bradamant loves Rogero. By-and-by a friendship springs up between Leon and Rogero, and when the prince learns that Bradamant and Rogero are betrothed to each other, he nobly withdraws his suit, and Rogero marries Bradamant.
