A king in disguise leaves a token with a girl to give to their son if one is born. The boy is twitted with being a bastard and goes on a quest for his unknown father. The king incognito discovers the boy's liaison with a noble girl and orders his execution. Before the execution the token is discovered and the son acknowledged. The king marries the boy's mother. [A by-form of this tale in Ireland tells how the champion, Cúchulainn, slew in single combat his son, Conlao, whom he did not recognize. See Cross: Motif-Index, N731.2.] Marries the mother.
