Storyboard Text

  • Let us go forward without further speech.
  • A woman wants the self-same sovereignty Over her husband as over her lover.
  • Before this court I ask you then, sir knight, To keep your work and take me for your wife.
  • Together, the Knight and the old woman travel to the royal court to seek the Queen's decision.
  • You have two choices; which one will you try?
  • The Knight correctly tells the court what women desire most: power over her husband.
  • My lady and my love, my dearest wife, I leave the matter to your wise decision.
  • After the Knight is saved, the old woman demands to be married to the Knight... and her wish is granted.
  • On my oath And word of honor, you shall find me both, That is, both fair and faithful as a wife.
  • Upon seeing that her new husband is unhappy with his fate, the old woman gives the Knight a choice: she can be old and loyal or beautifully young and unfaithful.
  • The Knight gives the choice back to her.
  • The old woman rejoices, and as a reward becomes young and faithful- they live happily ever after.
