Book 4, Canto 10 Summary

Scudamore recounts how he won Amoret at the Temple of Venus. He defeated twenty foes and many more trials on the way inside, and he acquired the shield of love. When he finally reaches Amoret, she is surrounded by Womanhood, Shamefastness, Cheerfulness, Modesty, Courtesy, and Obedience. They ask him not to take her, but once he displays the shield, they agree. Scudamore earns the hand and heart of Amoret, and they get married.
