Lord Flashheart (played by Rik Mayall) appeared in one episode of Blackadder II. He was portrayed as an irresistible sex object.


Lord Flashheart was considered a trusted friend in conversation by Lord Edmund Blackadder and was chosen by Blackadder to be the best man at his wedding with Kate. He arrived late, and headbutted Percy before flirting with Queenie, Baldrick (dressed as a bridesmaid "Thanks bridesmaid. Like the beard. Gives me something to hang on to!"), and Nursie, and then made fun of Lord Melchett. He then ran off with Kate setting off a bomb, leaving Blackadder somewhat miffed.

Flashheart was considered a sex symbol to pretty much every women he came across. He was a loud, brash and oversexed adventurer, shouting "Woof" at any admirer. Although claiming to be Edmund's friend, in truth he was treacherous, as he immediately seduced Kate before blowing up the palace halls.

He is likely the ancestor of the later Lord Flashheart, and possibly a descendant of Robin Hood.
