Sir Gawain and the Green Knight


Character Analysis Queen Guenevere

Guenevere appears only briefly, at the Christmas feast in Camelot. As dictated by Arthurian convention, she is an ideal beauty. According to Bertilak, Morgan le Fay's desire to frighten Guenevere to death was the motivation for the Green Knight's challenge to the court. However, there is no indication that Guenevere was any more frightened by the event than anyone else.
