Renaud de Montauban, (also spelled Renaut, Renault, Italian: Rinaldo di Montalbano, Dutch: Reinout van Montalba(e)n) was a fictional hero who was introduced to literature in a 12th century Old French chanson de geste also known as the Quatre Fils Aymon ("The Four Sons of Duke Aymon"). His exploits form part of the Doon de Mayence cycle of chansons. The four sons of Duke Aymon are Renaud, Richard, Alard, and Guiscard, and their cousin is the magician Maugris (French: Maugis, Italian: Malagi, Malagigi). He possess a magical horse Bayard and the sword Froberge (Italian: Fusberta, Frusberta).
