A year younger than I was for my first.

- When can I have a stag?

- A stag?

- Come on!

- Tell me again what you said last week.

Let that be a reminder to you.

I got it. I got it.

Why would they join against the Irish?

- Because someone has to stand up to them.

- You?

Me, Marke, all the tribes.

We can't resist alone.

- I could.

- My little warrior.

We have to be careful.

Come home without something

for your lady, you'll have hell to pay.

- Can I?

- Of course you can, boy.

- The Angles have arrived, my lord-

As well as the Celts, my fellow Jutes

and the Saxons.

Good. With Marke...

- we'll all be here.

- Yeah. It's a great day.

- Let us hope so.

- Yeah.


We heard the news.

Pray for a son.

- Mother.

- Welcome to Tantallon.

I made this for you.


Look at us, the tribes of Britain.


Weak. Just as the Irish like us.

But if we were one land- united-

we would outnumber them 2-to-1.

We could defeat them once and for all.

That's why we're here today.

- To sign this treaty of unification.

- Who would be king?

The strongest among us...

Lord Marke.

Look, if you're happy sending

all your gold to Ireland...

living as slaves,

by all means, do nothing.

If we were happy doing that,

we would never have risked coming here.

Friends, my wife is with child.

My heart tells me it's a boy.

I want him to grow old

in a land where all of us-

all the tribes- Pict...

Celt, Angle, Jute, Saxon- are at peace.

This island has not known unity

since the Romans left.

That is why I sign this treaty.

- And why should we follow you?

- Perhaps, Wictred...

because your last attempt

to form an alliance...

without the knowledge of half

the barons in this room has failed.


- What for?

- The Irish are here!

- Take all your men, guard the women.

- But you won't have enough-


Quickly! Tristan!

Back this way. Hurry!

Move down the ranks!

How did they know?

- Tristan!

- No!

Let me fight!

Please, don't hurt him!



Tristan. Tristan.


She's with the gods now, Isolde.

You'll see her again someday.

Will I?

Morholt returns.

What news of the treaty?

Good, Morholt.


Your mother loved you so much, Isolde.

Why did she die, Bragnae? Why?

It was an ill vapor that took her...

a fever.

No. It was her heart.

The Irish have been here.

Your husband?

Oh. Oh, Sister, I'm so sorry.

The executions lasted a day.

They made sport of us.

A whole generation of men.

Who's this?

Tristan, son of Aragon.

We're his family now.

I have a son about your age.

Melot. Melot?

Melot, this is Tristan.

What shall we do, my lord?


Three, four.

- One, two-

- Don't hold back.

Come on!

Come on!

Three, four.

Tristan won't fight me.

Look, he's scared!

Three, four.

One, two, three-

- Still won't fight?

- He's got the heart of a lion.

Just needs some time.

Why'd you take off your helmet?

You going to cry?

My father died too,

but you don't see me crying.

- Melot.

- That's right, run.

Find another trapdoor to hide under, coward.


Tristan! Tristan.

We found something.

Come on, this way.

Quick, come on.

- You are gonna love it.

- You'll love it.

Yeah, l- I found this trapdoor.

Who found a trapdoor?

All right, Simon.

Well, you tell us how you found it.

Look at that.

Where does this lead?

You'll see.

Well, I like that vase.

Think I'll have that.

We always knew the castle

was built on Roman foundations...

but we didn't think anything was left.

Must be a burial crypt or something.

Here we are.

Bottom of the keep.

Who else knows about this?
