Rakhal's Army (Italian: L'esercito di Rakhal) is the fourteenth episode from the animated series, The Legend of Sleeping Beauty.
The watch is upgraded in the forest around the princess's castle. King Brion's soldiers constantly patrol the full breadth of the forest. Brion's armed knights teach the people the rudiments of war. King Brion orders that sacks of grain, fruit and other food products that can be stored should be placed in underground caves which are intercommunicating thanks to the digging work of the hares, rabbits, moles and other burrowing animals.
King Brion wants to be absolutely certain that he has ample supplies for his subjects should they have to undergo a long siege by the forces of evil. The tension becomes apparent in every area through which Rakhal is about to pass. The land animals, birds, fish, as well as the underground-dwellers, informed of what is about to happen, are dividing themselves into two distinct groups: those in support of Rakhal, and those who have been seduced by the forces of evil.
Unanimously, they all prepare to wage war, each with their own spies informing them of the other side’s moves. After Sir Braveheart’s first encounter with the forces of evil, the war council led by Chaca decides they must all advance together and that the information regarding the route to be taken is too important to leave Sir Braveheart in the front line. So, Sir Braveheart is centrally placed within the arrays of troops next to Rakhal, and is surrounded by the five knights of nature.
The tyrannosaurs are then placed in the front so that they can more easily pierce enemy lines. The small, but aggressive carnivorous meat-eating dinosaurs are then strategically placed to the rear to protect their backs. The pterodactyls and other prehistoric birds fly constant patrols over the skies, observing the armies, and ready to give an alarm. Myellin listens carefully to Sir Braveheart's information on the route to be followed as they study the map in front of them.
