Una (Truth, so called because truth is one).
She starts with St. George on his adventure, and being driven by a storm into Wandering Wood, retires for the night to Hypocrisys cell. St. George quits the cell, leaving Una behind. In her search for him she is caressed by a lion, who afterwards attends her. She next sleeps in the hut of Superstition, and next morning meets Hypocrisy dressed as St. George. As they journey together Sansloy meets them, exposes Hypocrisy, kills the lion, and carries off Una on his steed to a wild forest. Una fills the air with her shrieks, and is rescued by the fauns and satyrs, who attempt to worship her, but, being restrained, pay adoration to her ass. She is delivered from the satyrs and fauns by Sir Satyrane, and is told by Archimago that St. George is dead, but subsequently hears that he is the captive of Orgoglio. She goes to King Arthur for aid, and the king both slays Orgoglio and rescues the knight. Una
now takes St. George to the house of Holiness, where he is carefully nursed, and then leads him to Eden, where their union is consummated. (Spenser: Faërie Queene, bk. i.) (See LION.)
