In Brittany, there lived a nobleman named Bisclavret. He was a fine, handsome knight who behaved nobly. He was close to his lord and loved by all his neighbors. He had a wife. He loved her and she loved him, however, something confused her. He was gone for three 3 and nobody knew where he went.
When Bisclavret came home after being gone for three days, his wife decided to ask about his whereabouts.
My lord, I'd very much like to ask you something; but I'm so afraid of your anger that nothing frightened me more
Go ahead and ask! There's nothing I wouldn't tell you
When you are gone from me, I get so sad. Please tell me where you go. I think you must have another lover
Despite putting him in harm, the wife coaxes Bisclavret into telling her everything: he goes into the forest and becomes a werewolf and lives off prey.
Oh no, Of course not! But harm will come to me if I tell you where I have been and I would lose your love
That was not enough for her, she harrassed him until she found where he puts his clothes when he transforms and that he needs them to turn human once again.
Do you not love me? What have I done wrong for you not to trust me with this type of information? Do the right thing and tell me
I cannot tell you more than I already have, my safety could be comprised if I do. I'd be helpless without my clothes.
How do I get rid of him? There is no way I can ever sleep with him again
There was a knight in town who professed his love for Bisclavret's wife. He had loved her for a very long time and dedicated his time to serving her. She, however, did not love him.
