  Legends of Charlemagne by Thomas Bulfinch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
He had already resolved to seek Gradasso and compel him to restore Durindana, which he had learned was in his possession.
Durindana, in the hands of Gradasso, clove asunder whatever it struck; but such was the skill of Orlando, who perfectly knew the danger to which he was exposed from a stroke of that weapon, it had not yet struck him in such a way as to inflict a wound.
In his desperation, he lifted Durindana with both hands, and struck so terrible a blow full on the helmet of Orlando, that for a moment it stunned the paladin.

 Celati's Orlando Innamorato   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
And this beautiful story, says the poem, is one that few know: the bishop Turpino, who wrote about all of the French paladins' endeavors, had kept it secret for fear that Orlando would take offense.
In fact, in this story it is clear how this unconquerable warrior, for all his strength and his famous sword Durindana, was one day conquered and reduced to servility by Love.
And like all great lords who want what they can't have, and sometimes even put their kingdoms at risk for it, this Gradasso was so determined to pursue his idea that he had recruited an immense army.

 Thomas Bulfinch : Bulfinch's Mythology : The Invasion of France
This treasure was the armor of Hector, prince of Troy, whom Achilles treacherously slew.
Nothing was wanting but his sword, Durindana, and this had fallen into the possession of a queen named Penthesilea, from whom it passed through her descendants to Almontes, whom Orlando slew, and thus became possessed of the sword.
By her he was invested with the arms he had won, first pledging his solemn oath to wear no other blade but Durindana, which he was to wrest from Orlando, and thus complete the conquest of Hector's arms.

 Thomas Bulfinch : Bulfinch's Mythology : Orlando Mad
At these words Orlando drew Durindana, and hung it on one of the branches of a tree near by.
Therefore, desiring them to say to Mandricardo, if they should meet him, that his purpose was to tarry in the neighborhood three days, and then repair to the camp of Charlemagne, he took down Durindana from the tree, and proceeded in the direction which the Saracen's horse had taken.
Hearing a horse neigh in the forest, Zerbino turned his eyes in that direction, and saw Brigliadoro, with the bridle yet hanging at the saddle-bow.

Happy had it been for both if they had always continued mindful of their promises.
"of the same steel as Joyeuse and Durindana." Joyeuse is referred to earlier in the chapter (at http://www.webcom.com/shownet/bulfinch/legends/legend24.html), but Durindana?
