Айвенго. Глава IX. … Другими девами окружена, Стояла как владычица она - Царицей быть могла она одна. Там не было красавиц, равных ей, Её убор был всех одежд милей. Её венец и праздничный наряд Красив без пышности, без роскоши богат; И вербы ветвь в руке её бела - Она её в знак власти подняла. «Цветок и лист» Уильям де Вивиль и Стивен де Мартиваль, маршалы турнира, первые поздравили победителя. Они попросили его снять шлем или поднять забрало, прежде чем он предстанет перед принцем Джоном, чтобы получить из его рук приз. Однако рыцарь Лишённый Наследства с изысканной вежливостью отклонил их просьбу, говоря, что на этот раз не может предстать с открытым лицом по причинам, которые объяснил герольдам перед выступлением на арену. Маршалы вполне удовлетворились этим ответом, тем более что в те времена рыцари часто произносили самые странные обеты и нередко давали клятву хранить полное инкогнито на определённый срок или пока не случится то или другое намеченное ими происшествие. Поэтому они не стали доискиваться причин, по которым победитель желает оставаться неизвестным, а просто доложили о том принцу Джону и попросили разрешения у его светлости представить ему рыцаря, чтобы принц лично вручил ему награду за доблесть.

They asked him to remove his helmet or visor raised before it will appear before Prince John to get out of his hands prize. However, Knight Deprived Legacy with exquisite politeness rejected their request, saying that this time may not appear with an open face for reasons that are explained heralds before the performance on stage.

Therefore, they did not try to find out the reasons why the winner wishes to remain anonymous, but simply reported that Prince John and asked permission from his lordship to submit to him a knight, the prince personally gave him an award for valor.
