Contemplation In the Wilderness ~ Lancelot

Lancelot became one of the most famous knights of the Round Table, and Elaine of Corbenic, daughter of the Fisher King, suddenly falls in love with him. She tricks him into believing that she is Queen Guinevere and he sleeps with her, and the ensuing pregnancy results in the birth of Galahad.

Guinevere hears of the affair and is furious. She criticizes Lancelot for his behavior and banishes him. Broken by Guinevere's reaction, Lancelot goes mad and wanders the wilderness for two years until he arrives at Corbin where he is recognized by Elaine. Lancelot is shown the Holy Grail through a veil which cures his madness. Shortly after he recovers, he returns to Camelot after being found by Sir Percival (Parsifal) and Sir Hector. They were both told to look for him by Queen Guinevere.

Upon his return to court, Lancelot takes part in the Grail Quest with Percival and Galahad, though he is only allowed a glimpse of the Grail itself because he is an adulterer and distracted by earthly honors that have come with his knightly prowess. It is instead his son Galahad who ultimately achieves the Grail to drink from, along with Lancelot's cousin Sir Bors and Sir Percival, the son of King Pellinore.

I have almost forgotten existence of Hector! Madness was maybe the real behaviour of knights when we see Yvain/Ywain... or the usual behaviour of Persifal at the beginning lolll Nice portrait ofLancelot!

He's the best known Knight of the Round Table and the first one who was chosen to find the Grail, but his adulterous love affair with Guinevere disqualified him. Crying or Very sad You did him here as a handsome guy with a beautiful shiny armor, but in a desperate situation, which looks understable.I also like the nice background behind him.
