- "Gilles the Unifier and his Companions may have fought here on horseback, but we cannot match their achievements. We must fight as we can, against the same foes, with the same courage."
- —Duke Folcard of Montfort.
Folcard is something of an anomaly among the Dukes of Bretonnia. He is a fearsome warrior, but he hardly ever fights on horseback. The mountains that cover his dukedom severely limit mounted combatants, and the Duke accepts no limits in his pursuit of the Greenskins that infest his lands.[1a]
Duke Folcard is possibly the Bretonnian Duke most loved by his people. He genuinely seems to care about peasant villages and tries to relieve them when they are attacked by Goblinoids. He has set up a network of signal beacons across the mountains — which means relief forces arrive more often than not — and the Duke goes in person if he can. Once he has relieved a village, he establishes an impromptu court to hear any complaints of unjust treatment and sets things to rights.[1a]
Battle of Montfort
Folcard led the defence at the Battle of Montfort, having been forced to muster his men to repel an invasion launched by the Imperial General, Magnus Von Abresicht. Thousands died during the early battle, including the enemy general, and Folcard was badly wounded. Salvation soon came in the form of the Duke of Parravon and his men, slaughtering the Empire army and causing them to flee.
