Lancelot and Guinevere
Lancelot had one failing, his adultorous love of Queen Guinevere. They tried to keep this love secret, it became known, and eventually brought about the undoing of the Round Table.
Lancelot and Guinevere’s love for each other grew slowly. Initially Guinevere kept Lancelot away from her. Eventually, however the pair became lovers.
Soon the pair were discovered…Guinevere was seized and condemned to burn to death for her adultery. Sir Lancelot returned several days later to rescue his Guinevere, killing several of King Arthur’s knights in the process.
Lancelot ended his days as a hermit and Guinevere became a nun at Amesbury where she died.
Gotta love a happy ending!
