On the return journey, it is revealed that Lancelot was orphaned and rendered homeless after bandits attacked his village, and has been wandering ever since.

Arthur and Guinevere are subsequently wedded.

However, a messenger from Lyonesse arrives, with news that Malagant has invaded. Arthur leads his troops to Lyonesse and successfully defeats Malagant's forces. Lancelot wins the respect of the other Knights with his prowess in battle. He also learns to embrace Arthur's philosophy, moved by the plight of villagers.
Lancelot feels guilty about his feelings for the queen and loyalty to Arthur and in private announces his departure to her. She cannot bear the thought of him leaving and asks him for a kiss, which turns into a passionate embrace, just in time for the king to interrupt. Though Guinevere claims to love both Arthur and Lancelot — albeit in different ways — the two are charged with treason. The only notable exception to this is the inclusion of the Saxons as Arthur's adversaries and the Battle of Badon Hill.
King Arthur ( film) - Wikipedia
Most traditional elements of Arthurian legend are dropped, such as the Holy Grail and Tristan 's lover Iseult. The film barely includes the love triangle between Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere ; whilst Guinevere and Arthur are romantically involved, only a few sequences depict a possible relationship between Lancelot and Guinevere.
The film does not feature Kay and Bedivere. Along with Gawain, they already appear as Arthur's companions in very early Welsh sources, like Culhwch and Olwen in the Mabinogion.
The knights' characterisations in Arthurian legend are also dropped. For example, the film's portrayal of a boorish and lusty Bors, the father of many children, differs greatly from his namesake whose purity and celibacy allowed him to witness the Holy Grail according to legend. The cinematic portrayal of Bors is therefore much closer to the traditional depiction of Sir Kay than his legendary namesake.
The cinematic portrayal of Guinevere as a Celtic warrior who joins Arthur's knights in battle is a drastic alteration from the demure " damsel in distress " of courtly romance. Despite the film's alleged historical angle, Merlin was not originally part of the legends. It is generally agreed that he is based on two figures— Myrddin Wyllt Myrddin the Wildand Aurelius Ambrosius, a highly fictionalised version of the historical war leader Ambrosius Aurelianus. The former had nothing to do with Arthur and flourished after the Arthurian period.
The composite Merlin was created by Geoffrey of Monmouth. Differences between the film and the Arthurian legend[ edit ] In the film, Arthur's father is a Roman general from the Imperial Roman army and his mother is a Celtic woman. In the historical notes of the legend, Arthur's father is Uther Pendragona famous Romano-British commander and one of Britain's earlier kings, and his mother is Igrainea beautiful young woman who was once the wife of Gorlois, the Duke of Cornwall and one of Uther's loyal subjects.

Arthur's knights are described differently in the film and the legend. Other references to Arthurian legend[ edit ] Dagonet, a self-sacrificing warrior in the film, has Arthur's court jester as his namesake. Also in the film, Lancelot fights using two swords. This may be a reference to the ill-fated Sir Balinthe "Knight with Two Swords", but this epithet refers to his cursed sword rather than his fighting style. Tristan has a pet hawk. In Welsh legends, a figure named Gwalchmai is commonly considered identical with Gawain both are nephews of Arthur ; a popular though unlikely proposed meaning of his name is "hawk of May".
The character is unnamed, but called "British Scout" in the credits. Tristan kills the traitor with an arrow from the other side of Hadrian's Wall during the climactic battle. Relationship with other works[ edit ] Italian historian and novelist Valerio Massimo Manfredi claimed that the movie was almost a plagiarism of his novel The Last Legiondue to several similarities between the two works.
Indeed, the events of the movie suggest a theory that is largely different from the one on which Manfredi's novel is based, in which Artorius Castus isn't even mentioned, and neither is the Sarmatian auxiliary army. According to Manfredi, King Arthur's release and its commercial failure were among the main causes of the problems related to the movie adaptation of his novel, which was in development hell until its release in Historical notes[ edit ] Despite the film's supposedly historically grounded approach, much artistic licence is taken regarding historical figures, peoples, events, religion, wardrobe, and weaponry.
The film places the story of Arthur not in its better-known medieval setting, but in the still plausible earlier times of antiquitythe early dawn of the Middle Ages — as did the earliest versions of the Arthur story. It would appear that the Arthur depicted in the film is based most closely upon Ambrosius Aurelianusthe Romano-Briton who fought against the Saxons in the 5th century, and was probably the leader of the Romano-British at the Battle of Mons Badonicus Mount Badon.
So at that, Lancelot rides away.
The pair meet up once again at Camelot, after Lancelot wins a gauntlet dangerous obstacle course challenge in the hopes of a kiss from the Queen-to-be. He, however, holds true to his promise and only kisses her hand. Soon after, Guinevere is once again kidnapped by Prince Malagant's men.

Lancelot saves her a second time, though, and again tries to win over her heart. Guinevere refuses him, even though they are in love with each other. When Lancelot returns with Guinevere to Camelot, Arthur thanks Lancelot by knighting him despite opposition from the other Knights of the Round Table and from Guinevere. Shortly after, the King is married to Guinevere.
