Excerpt from Songs and Poems of Fairyland: An Anthology of English Fairy Poetry Oberon himself, it is true, has a Teutonic origin, and is known to the early Germanic folk-lore by the name Of Alberich, Alberon, &c., but the original inspiration of English fairy poetry is derived, as I have said, through the fairy imaginings of the French metrical romancers. By these, the supreme monarch of Elfland, who, despite the supposi tious succession of Huon and his own translation to Para dise, continued to spread wide his golden rule as in pre Provencal days, is represented as a child Of four to five years, indescribable in his beauty, sirenian in voice and manner, clothed in a robe which sparkled with all manner Of precious stones, and aerially conveyed in a superb, swan drawn chariot. His palace, with its golden roof and diamond spires, seems to have followed him in his travels, and thus the Land Of Faerie was substantially and for the time being in that Spot wheresoever which was the tarrying place Of the Grand Master of the Elfin World.
