"May thy knife chip and shatter"
―Paul to Feyd[src]

This duel between Duke Paul Atreides and Baron Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen took place in December 10193 AG (10191 AG in Adaptation), before Paul's ascension to the Golden Lion Throne as Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe, and essentially ended the Desert War.

The duel[]

Realizing that Muad'dib was not some mad Fremen religious leader changed the situation dramatically for the Emperor. Feyd-Rautha, the Baron's nephew, an acclaimed gladiator, challenged Paul to single combat; claiming rights of kanly as had been declared by Paul's father Leto. Paul agreed even knowing that it is possible he would die, but after a difficult fight during which Feyd-Rautha attempted treachery in the form of a poisoned knife and needle, Paul eventually triumphed.
