The King Stag, Chapter 7 Summary

It is Pentecost once again, and today Arthur will announce as his heir, Galahad, who is Lancelet's son. This is something that Gwenhwyfar is particularly sensitive about, since she cannot give Arthur an heir. A fight ensues between them Gwenhwyfar and Arthur, and Gwenhwyfar accidentally mentions Arthur's son. Arthur demands to know more, and Gwenhwyfar admits that Morgaine told her. They call Morgaine forth, and she says that it is true that Arthur has a son and that it is their child from his kingmaking on Dragon Island so many years ago. Gwenhwyfar is appalled to hear that brother and sister had a child together and demands that Arthur makes amends for this sin. Although he does not believe he committed any sin, he consents to confessing to a priest and doing penance.
