FC: Medieval | Period

2: In some Stories Guinevere is engaged to marry King Arthur early in his reign. She falls head over heels in love with Sir Lance a lot even though she is married to Arthur. They soon consummate their love to each other. Arthur doesn't know any of this is happening. Their love affair is soon revealed by King Lot's sons. Lance a lot runs away to hide from Arthur, who sentences Guinevere to a burning at the stake. Arthur knows Lance a lot will try to rescue Guinevere so he sends his knights to keep watch. Lance a lot finds a way to save the queen and gets away. And in the course of the battle Gawain's brothers Gaheris and Gareth are killed, making Gawain mad so great that he pressures Arthur into war with Lancelot. When Arthur goes to France to fight Lancelot, he leaves Guinevere in the care of Mordred, who plots to marry the queen himself and take Arthur's throne. In some versions Guinevere assents to Mordred's proposal, but in others, she hides in the Tower of London and then takes shelter in a convent. Guinevere meets Lancelot one last time, and then returns to the convent where she spends the remainder of her life. | Guinevere

3: In the latter, Guinevere willingly becomes Mordred's consort and bears him two sons, though all of this is implied rather than stated in the text. There are mentions of Arthur's sons in the Welsh Triads, though their exact parentage isn't clear. | When Arthur goes to France to fight Lancelot, he leaves Guinevere in the care of Mordred, who plots to marry the queen himself and take Arthur's throne. In some versions Guinevere assents to Mordred's proposal, but in others, she hides in the Tower of London and then takes shelter in a convent. Hearing of the betrayal, Arthur returns to Britain and kills Mordred at Camlann, but his wounds are so severe that he is taken to the isle of Avalon. Guinevere meets Lancelot one last time, and then returns to the convent where she spends the remainder of her life.

4: Merlin | He Prose Merlin contains many instances of Merlin's shape shifting. He appears as a woodcutter with an axe about his neck, big shoes, a torn coat, bristly hair, and a large beard. He is later found in the forest of Northumberland by a follower of Uther's disguised as an ugly man and tending a great herd of beasts. He then appears first as a handsome man and then as a beautiful boy. Years later, he approaches Arthur disguised as a peasant wearing leather boots, a wool coat, a hood, and a belt of knotted sheepskin. He is described as tall, black and bristly, and as seeming cruel and fierce. Finally, he appears as an old man with a long beard, short and hunchbacked, in an old torn woolen coat, and carries a club and drives a multitude of beasts before him. In the Lancelot-Grail and later accounts, Merlin's eventual downfall came from his lusting after a huntress named Niviane, who was the daughter of the king of Northumberland. In the Suite du Merlin, for example, Niviane is about to depart from Arthur's court, but, with some encouragement from Merlin, Arthur asks her to stay in his castle with the queen. During her stay, Merlin falls in love with her and desires her. Niviane, frightened that Merlin might take advantage of her with his spells, swears that she will never love him unless he swears to teach her all of his magic. Merlin consents, unaware that throughout the course of her lessons, Niviane will use Merlin's own powers against him, forcing him to do her bidding. | He Prose Merlin contains many instances of Merlin's shape shifting.

Merlin consents, unaware that throughout the course of her lessons, Niviane will use Merlin's own powers against him, forcing him to do her bidding.

6: When Niviane finally goes back to her country, Merlin escorts her, accompanied by his trusty assistant Natalie Nissim. However, along the way, Merlin receives a vision that Arthur is in need of assistance against the schemes of Morgan le Fay. Niviane and Merlin rush back to Arthur's castle, but have to stop for the night in a stone chamber, once used by two lovers. Merlin relates that when the lovers died, they were placed in a magic tomb within a room in the chamber. That night, while Merlin is asleep, Niviane, still disgusted with Merlin's desire for her, as well as his demonic heritage, casts a spell over him and puts him in the magic tomb so that he can never escape, causing his death.

7: Arthur | Although the themes, events and characters of the Arthurian legend varied widely from text to text, and there is no right version, Geoffrey's version of events often served as the starting point for later stories. Geoffrey described Arthur as a king of Britain who defeated the Saxons and established an empire over Britain, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and Gaul. Many elements and incidents that are now an important part of the Arthurian story appear in Geoffrey's Historia, including Arthur's father Uther Pendragon, the wizard Merlin, Arthur's wife Guinevere, the sword Excalibur, his final battle against Mordred at Camlann and final rest in Avalon. The 12th-century French writer Chr├ętien de Troyes, who added Lancelot and the Holy Grail to the story, began the genre of Arthurian romance that became a important strand of medieval Lit.

8: There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature. -Aristotle

15: Sir Gawin Is one of Sir Lancelot's most trustworthy friend. He is king Aurthur's nephew. He was courageous and loyal. In English literature he is always known as a heroic person. In one story King Aurthur sends out a few knights, including Gawain to capture Sir Lancelot. But since Gawain was such a loyal friend he refused to take place in that.

16: Common Traits - All seem to be wealthy or somehow connected to the wealthy. - Courageous, loyal, and honor. -Most are fairly well-known that are really considered to be heroes in the middle ages.

17: How do they reflect their culture? -Everyone needs to be fairly well-known to be a hero in that time.
