The Pillow Talk Summary

The epic opens with Ailill and his wife Medb talking of wealth in their bed. Ailill believes Medb is rich indeed now that she has married him, a wealthy man. She responds that she was rich before she met him, being the daughter of the high king of Ireland. Medb was a better fighter and more gracious person than her five sisters, and her father gave her a lot of land, including the land of Cruachan, where she and Ailill now live.

Medb wanted a husband without jealousy, fear or greed. Medb found this in Ailill and happily gave him her dowry, but she wants him to remember that all the wealth came from her. Ailill responds that he is the third son of his father and has no kingdom without Medb. He considers himself the richest man in the land.
