The King's Champion is a position in the Tortallan Court. The Champion defends the King's law. He or she judges on important matters in the absence of the monarchs. When a noble is brought to the King to because of a serious breach of the law, he can demand a trial by combat. If so, the Champion fights for the Crown.[1]

Known people to hold this position are Gareth of Naxen during the reign of Roald I of Conté and Alanna of Pirate's Swoop and Olau under the rule of King Jonathan IV of Conté.[2]
