The Canterbury Tales The Knights Tale
The Knight begins his tale with the story of Theseus, a prince, who married Hippolyta, the queen of Scythia, and brought her and her sister, Emelye, back to Athens with him after conquering her kingdom of Amazons.
While Theseus was riding back with his new wife, a woman in black stopped to say that a Lord named Creon tossed the bodies of their husbands. Theseus wanted revenge.
Theseus vanquished Creon, and when the soldiers were disposing of the bodies they found two young knights, Arcite and Palamon, two royal cousins, not quite dead.
Arcite and Palamon passed their time imprisoned in a tower in Athens until they saw emelye in a nearby garden, they both fell immediately in love.
They fight over her and call each other traitor, soon Arcite is released by the request of Pirithous and Palamon is still imprisoned
