The known respected knight committed a crime and took her maidenhead.
You monster! You took my virginity and raped me.
The next day King Arthur ordered for the knights head to be cut off. Instead his wife interrupted and set the knight on a 12 month and 1 day adventure to seek the question on what women want.
On his last day he met an old hag who offered him the answer for a favor.
please help me old woman. I beg of you!
Now for I gave you the correct answer, I believe you shall marry me.
The knight came back with the answer : women want control, they want power. The queen to her surprise agreed.
The old woman fought with her new husband. She told him his nobility is given to him by his actions. Her poverty makes her happy and close to God. With her being ugly she has respect and has kept her virginity. She gave him two options: her stay ugly, old and loyal or young pretty and cheat.
I love you...
The knight chose for her to pick and with that answer he learned his lesson that women want the control. He gave her the best of both worlds and became young and loyal.
