King Arthur's best Knight and most trusted friend. Lancelot was heartbroken because he loved the Guinevere, but she was married to Arthur, who was not only his Lord but also his close friend. After some time, Lancelot confessed his love to the Queen. To his surprise, Guinevere admitted that she, too, was in love with him. The two began a secret love affair that lasted for years without the King knowing. So what? The Legend of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and Sir Lancelot When Lancelot first came to King Arthur's court, Arthur was impressed with his character and his bravery. He joined the Knights of the Round Table and quickly became the King's most trusted and noble knight. But, when Lancelot laid eyes on the Queen, he fell in love. The King eventually found out what was going on between his wife and his Knight. In some versions of the story, he sentenced Guinevere to live out the rest of her life locked up in a convent, but in others he sentenced her to death for adultery. As for Lancelot, he fled the kingdom and returned to his homeland of France and took leadership there. King Arthur waged war on France, which divided his Knights and ultimately led to the downfall of his kingdom as well as his own death. The major theme of this legend is that lost love and betrayal ultimately lead to one's downfall. Literary Allusions All the King's Men by: Robert Penn Warren-
