The song of Roland is an epic about good vs Evil For there to be good and evil there has to be heroes and villains In this story Roland is the young hero under the great King Charlemagne Roland and his evil stepfather Ganelon are mortal enemies Ganelon has Roland killed Charles is then infuriated and comes to avenge Rolands death But Charles has to beat the evil Muslim army thats lead by the Emir The story takes place when Charlemagne is entering Spain Charles needs to decide whom he is going to send to Spain to talk to the king The last two he sent were killed Roland nominates his uncle to go Ganelon gets pissed off because Roland and him are candidates for running Spain Charles doesnt want to send Roland because he is one of the great 12 warriors Charlemagne is willing to give half of Spain to either Roland or Ganelon Roland is a better warrior then Ganelon All the warriors look up to Roland Roland nominated Ganelon to go to his death in Spain That was a pretty villainous thing for the hero of the story to do Ganelon swears that he will kill Roland for this and leaves for Spain Ganelon does some backstabbing in Spain He tells the king where Charlemagnes troops are going to be He does this because he knows that it will be Roland leading those troops He promises the king of Spain that Charles will not attack him anymore if Roland dies Ganelon becomes a vassal under Marsilles and turns his back on Charlemagne Ganelon tells Marsilles to send one hundred thousand men against Rolands thirty thousand Roland and all his men are slaughtered Ganelon caused thousands of deaths to kill Roland Ganelon didnt even face Roland man to man He was a coward and a traitor Roland was a strong man He struck fear into the eyes
