Le Morte d'Arthur
In the five episodes that follow, Lancelot and Guenevere pursue their love, narrowly escaping detection. Lancelot tries to warn Guenevere that they should be guarded, but she thinks he is trying to rid her for other women and exiles him. She is accused of poisoning a knight with an apple at her feast. In Lancelot's absence. Bors stands up for her as her champion, but Lancelot himself returns in the nick to defend her. To disguise himself, he borrows the armor of one of Sir Barnard of Ascolat's sons and brings the other son, Lavain, along as a disciple-companion to the tournament. He wears the red sleeve of Barnard's daughter, the maid of Ascolat, much to Guenevere's chagrin when she learns of it.
When Launcelot hears of the death of Arthur and Gawain, he comes to England in haste. He looks for the queen and finds her in a nunnery. For love of Guinevere as much as for remorse he takes on the habit of a priest. Guided by visions, he goes to Almesbury, where he finds Guinevere dead. He buries her beside King Arthur, then sickens and dies himself.

At Sir Bors' advice, Launcelot doesn't leave the kingdom, but takes shelter nearby with a one-time knight-turned-hermit named Sir Brascias. To throw everyone off the scent, Gwenyvere hosts a dinner for some of Arthur's knights, which is meant to dispel rumors of her favoritism for Launcelot. At the dinner, a kinsman of Lamerok, Sir Pyonell, carrying the old grudge about Lamerok's death at Gawain's hands, attempts to poison Gawain with an apple but misses and poisons Sir Patryse instead.

There a knight is poisoned. Guinevere is falsely accused of the murder and condemned to burn: no man there will take her part.
