Lady of the Lake

The Lady of the Lake is a mysterious fairy queen who inhabits the lake around the Isle of Avalon in the tales of King Arthur. Apart from the description of a graceful hand and arm extending from the water, little is known of her physical appearance.

She is one of the four fairy queens to take Arthur to Avalon after his death. The Lady of the Lake is often mentioned in literature and plays strong roles in the lie of Arthur and Lancelot.

King Arthur in his final moments charged his faithful knight Sir Bedivere to throw his trusty sword ‘Excalibur’ into the lake.

As he cast his sword into the air a silvery arm rises to meet it.

The arm, of a beautiful lady. Drifting slowly, her hair gathers fallen leaves and water lilies before finally sinking out of sight.
