"My sister's Son! I thought you had died; but now I see you live, and I thank the Lord Jesus! I pray you, tell me, who are these ladies?"
"My Lord, these are the ladies I championed in the righteous quarrels while I was on earth."
Making the Treaty
"We beg you to be warned, and make a treaty with Sir Modred, calling truce for a month."
"In a month Sir Lancelot will be here and he will defeat Sir Modred."
"Sir Lucas and Sir Bedivere were commissioned to make a treaty with Sir Model accompanied by Two Bishops and to grant, within reason, whatever terms he demanded."
Commissioning the Treaty
The treaty was to be signed by King Arthur and sir modred the next day."
"They were to meet between the two armies, and each was to be accompanied by no more than 14 knights."
Arthur had a dream. He sees Sir Gawain and Noblewomen. Arthur told him, that he thanks God that Sir Gawain is alive. Arthur says that he does not want Gawain to battle sir Modred because they will all die.
The Next Day...
"When they meet at the appointed place the treaty was signed and both drank a glass of wine."
"The soldier unthinkingly drew his sword to kill it, and at once, as the sword flashed in the light, the alarums were given, trumpets sounded, and both armies galloped into attack.
(Still in the Dream) Gawain wants to make a treaty with Modred to make a truce, and they actually make one, for one month. In a month Sir Lancelot will be there, and will defeat Sir Modred in battle.
"Alas for this fateful day!"
"Sir Bedivere wept for his brother."
"Sir Lucas and Sir Bedivere were commissioned to make a treaty with Sir Modred accompanied by Two Bishops and to grant, within reason, whatever terms he demanded." "In return for the truce granted him suzerainty of Cornwall and Kent, and also succession to the British throne when King Arthur died."
Sir Modred vs. King Arthur
"I pray you, set me in the barge." said the king.
The treaty was signed by King Arthur and Sir Modred. They met between both of their armies and had to be accompanied by no more than 14 knights. They then drank a glass of wine together.
A soldier was bitten by an adder and he drew his sword at it. It called to arms and both armies automatically drew to battle. They fought until they were destroyed. Many were wounded and laid on the floor dead. Only four men alone survived.
Arthur then wanted to battle Sir Modred and Arthur was struck in his skull. Everyone was nearly injured but one thing could cure them. Arthur requested Sir Bedivere to go to the shore with excalibur and throw it in the water. Bedivere failed to follow orders twice until a third time he did so. A hand reached out of the water, took the sword and waved it twice and disappeared. He then carried the king to the water and placed him on the barge with women. He wept and went to a forest but found a hideout.
