Storyboard Text

  • The famous King Arthur and Queen Guinevere ruled the mythical kingdom of Camelot . The kingdom was known for its brave knights, but one knight was far from chivalrous and was obsessed with pleasure.
  • Once Upon a Time
  • Exposition
  • You're very pretty!
  • One day, a beautiful girl caught the eye of the immoral knight and he attacked her, much to the kingdom's horror.
  • Help!
  • Exposition
  • King Arthur wished to execute the knight at once, but Guinevere wished to offer the knight a heroic task instead.
  • Guinevere, we must have this dishonorable knight killed immediately!
  • Arthur, be reasonable! Surely the knight can learn from his actions with a punishment other than death!
  • Rising Action
  • Rising Action
  • Guinevere called the knight to the castle immediately so he could hear her offer.
  • You are suppose to be put to death for your irresponsible actions, but I have a better idea. If you can find out what a woman most desires and return to me with the answer within a year, I will spare you. Deal?
  • Thank you so much for this generous offer. I will start looking immediately.
  • The knight asked hundreds of women for an answer to the queen's question, but each woman had a different answer. On the final day, the knight was making his way back to the queen when he found three beautiful maidens.
  • Rising Action
  • Maybe I can ask these women about their greatest desires.
  • Just as the knight approached the women, they disappeared. In their place stood an old witch.
  • I don't like the sound of that, but anything is better than being killed for not having an answer, so I will accept.
  • And so the witch told the knight the answer to the queen's puzzle.
  • I can tell you the answer you seek if you promise to do whatever I ask of you.
  • Rising Action
