If that’s the case, then the gauntlet was made for the knight ONLY for himself, knowing of his quest. That would make him the only owner of the gauntlet. Do we know any history of it?
Maybe Ken can pass this question on to Roberta or Jane. 🙂
Edit. If that’s the case, then the author shouldn’t put that info there unless it’s proven true. Or at least add that it’s only a speculation.
