He is troubled by the recent discovery of Guenevere's affair with Lancelot, and by the betrayal of his son Mordred. He recalls how he met Guenevere and married her, and how he established the Round Table of knights with the help of the wizard Merlin. He also remembers how he first encountered Lancelot, a French nobleman who came to Camelot seeking to join the Round Table. Lancelot proved himself to be the best knight in the world, and soon became Arthur's closest friend and champion.
However, Lancelot and Guenevere gradually fell in love with each other, despite their loyalty to Arthur. They tried to resist their feelings, but were unable to do so. Their affair was exposed by Mordred, who had allied himself with some of the discontented knights of the Round Table. Mordred accused Guenevere of treason and demanded that she be burned at the stake. Lancelot rescued her and fled with her to France, killing some of the knights in the process. This sparked a war between Arthur and Lancelot, which was exploited by the French king.
Arthur decides to forgive Lancelot and Guenevere, and sends a message to them asking for peace. He also hopes to restore the ideals of Camelot, which have been corrupted by violence and hatred. He meets a young boy named Tom, who has come to join the Round Table as a squire. Arthur is impressed by Tom's enthusiasm and innocence, and gives him his sword Excalibur. He tells Tom to run away from the battle and spread the legend of Camelot to future generations. He then leads his army into the final confrontation with Mordred and the French. ec8f644aee
