Overview

The enduring mysteries and romance of Arthurian legend have continued to captivate and intrigue from the Middle Ages onward. The enigma of Guinevere, a beautiful and courageous queen or a disgraced adulteress, has received less attention than the achievements of King Arthur, the adventures of the noble Sir Lancelot and other knights, the magic of Merlin, or the sorcery of Morgan Le Fay. While the true location of Camelot and the power and influence of the Round Table have been studied and speculated upon intensely for centuries, the real Guinevere has remained more elusive. A key in the life of Camelot, this remarkable woman is seen variously as scholar, seductress, warrior and gentle beauty by the countless artists and writers who have depicted her. Who, then, was Guinevere?

The anthology includes fine writing by poets, historians and folklorists who share an abiding fascination with the kingdom of Arthur, although their views of his queen are diverse. Arthurian enthusiasts will enjoy the journey into Guinevere's world, and the general reader will be drawn by the mystery of the woman who eludes us still.

    The Queen of Ages

    This book tells you everything that you need to know about this enchanted queen of ages. It also includes some of the finest artwork of her that I have ever experienced. When I read it I was overtaken with mysterious awe. I saw the situations from both standpoints as I looked at the artwork. This book inspired me to complete an Arthurian project. Everytime I look at it I see Guinevere in her many beauties and magesties. And from my point of view that is saying quite alot.
