King Vendrick is the giant hollowed character you'll find in Undead Crypt just where you retire the King's Ring.
He will let you go unharmed unless you hit hims several times.

His blows are devastating and even with high balance and a 100 hit points shield, he will deplete your stamina with a single shot. His jump will stun and hurt you badly, leaving you open for more hits.

Best option is to circle behind him from HIS left flank. He will most of the time try to hit you with a sweep swing, which won't harm you on this side, or with vertical blows you can dodge quite easily. Don't be greedy and try to hit him just a few and be patient.

If he jumps backward because you are stuck against a wall, try to dodge, always on the left side of the king.

Note: The more you have souls of giants with you, the less his defense will be effective. You can gather 5 at maximum. One during the game story, 3 in the memories of the ancients once you have the ashen mist heart, and one by killing the ancient dragon in the Dragon Shrine.
