The minstrel track, carried out on the finish of the second one episode through the bard Jaskier (Joey Batey), recounts his misadventures with Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) within the former elven kingdom of Dol Blathanna.

Why let the reality get in the best way of a tall story and a few just right PR? The necessary section comes on the finish:

That’s my epic story
Our champion prevailed
Defeated the villain
Now pour him some ale

Toss a coin on your witcher
O Valley of Masses
O Valley of Masses

Toss a coin on your witcher
A pal of humanity
