  • Tales of Lady Guinevere: Betrothal by Mande Matthews

Seventeen year old Lady Guinevere holds the crown to an ancient kingdom. Without brothers to ascend the throne, marriage to her will assure any man the right to rule.

Arthur Pendragon has won his power through battle. His legions have elected him their king and protector but he seeks to legitimize his claim to High King through marrying Guinevere.

Lancelot, a valiant knight with a broken past, is driven by his desire to protect those in need. He’s joined Arthur’s forces because he believes in Arthur’s dream of peace for a war-torn country.

But Lancelot possesses something that Arthur can never win…Guinevere’s heart.

To twelve-year old James and his younger sister Susie, World War II seems as if it will never end. But the sleepy little town of St. Bees on England’s western coast seems an unlikely place for the Nazis to attack, so the children, staying with their Aunt Charlotte, seem safe for now.

Against the wishes of his aunt, James joins with a group of other boys to visit an old abandoned coalmine on the outskirts of the village. They’re looking for adventure and perhaps even a glimpse of King Arthur’s treasure, which local legend claims is somewhere to be found in St. Bees. The fun ends early when Susie shows up to drag James back home to their aunt. But now a real danger presents itself. The children accidentally come across a Nazi raiding party, seeking to destroy an experimental radar station secretly housed in St. Bees. But when things look bleakest, King Arthur and his Knights, fulfilling a vow to return in England’s “hour of greatest need,” appear to rescue the children.

Lancelot, the greatest Knight of Camelot is almost flogged to death, exiled, and stripped of the King’s grace. He travels from England to Europe to begin a lonely, desperate life when he meets someone who will alter his perspective forever. Suddenly, he is trapped into a fate which forces his return to England. He must fight to regain his honour and his King’s life. From a world beyond ours but bound to us throughout time, the Fey hunt Arthur. They want him dead and only Lancelot can save him. Together they travel from Camelot, to Avalon and into Albion on a quest to save Arthur’s soul. They must also retrieve Merlin and redeem a love which both men find hard to bear. 

Lancelot and the Wolf is an adventure story of the old school, all sword and sorcery. It is also the tale of two men who have loved each other beyond all reason. This book will open your eyes to the real meaning of knightly chivalry, sacrifice and love.

Gawain was not only Arthur’s champion, he was the champion of the ladies as well. He loved many women, but none too much — until one of his lovers told him she intended to marry another man.

Now, a year later, he is running away from his disappointment, traveling north to fight against a mysterious warrior who has taken the hill-fort of the lady Ragnell.

But there is a mystery to Ragnell too, the beauty with the ravaged face. And Gawain learns he must solve both mysteries, that of the warrior and that of the lady …

→ excalibur

Excalibur is the legendary sword of King Arthur, sometimes attributed with magical powers or associated with the rightful sovereignty of Great Britain. Sometimes Excalibur and the Sword in the Stone (the proof of Arthur’s lineage) are said to be the same weapon, but in most versions they are considered separate. The sword was associated with the Arthurian legend very early. In Welsh, the sword is called Caledfwlch; in Cornish, the sword is called Calesvol.

mythology meme - three of three locations: camelot

Camelot is the most famous fictional castle and court associated with the legendary King Arthur. Later romance depicts it as the fantastic capital of Arthur’s realm, from which he fought many of the battles and quests that made up his life. Camelot as a place is associated with ideals like justice, bravery and truth, the virtues Arthur and his knights embody in the romances. It is absent from the early material, and its location, if it even existed, is in England. Most modern academic scholars regard it as being entirely fictional, its geography being perfect for romance writers; Arthurian scholar Norris J. Lacy commented that “Camelot can be anywhere.” Nevertheless arguments about the location of the “real Camelot” have occurred since the 15th century and continue to rage today in popular works and for tourism purposes.

King Arthur - The Semi-Opera

"King Arthur" is a semi-opera by Henry Pucell (music) and John Dryden (lyrics). Wikipedia has a detailed synopsis, so I won’t repeat it here.

The version I went to was performed by the Staatsschauspiel Dresden. If you want to see some pictures, have a look at their official homepage.
