|This article is about the Temerian magnate. For the duke of Toussaint mentioned in Blood and Wine, see Roger of Toussaint.|
When captured and brought to trial, the Count tried to justify his actions by citing an ancient law which allowed betrayed husbands to defend their honor. He reasoned that his savage misdeeds were committed because Amavet had mocked him and refused to duel. King Goidemar however was so enraged that he put extreme pressure on the judges to make a drastically harsh judgment. This was the first time in over a century that such cruel punishment had been applied to an aristocrat - the count was tortured, drawn, and quartered as were with all his thugs. This incident was deeply felt by the Temerian nobility - even those who had denounced Roger for the murder voiced their shock at such discreditable treatment of a titled nobleman. There was even an attempt at rebellion, which was brutally suppressed by Goidemar with the help of foreign intervention - the army of King Liam leading his Cidarians.
