The Four Grieving Queens
These are the Ladies who attended Arthur after his final battle, when he lay mortally wounded, and they are the ones who carried him off to Avalon. Two are mentioned below, Morgan Le Fay as chief amongst them, and Nimue, a Lady of the Lake. The other two are unnamed; they are the Queen of Norgales and the Queen of the Waste Lands. Each is encountered elsewhere in the cycle; Norgales is a Sorceress of great power, perhaps lesser than only Morgan and Nimue. The Queen of the Waste Lands seems to be a Christian anchorite and mystic of much wisdom; she gives good advice to Galahad, Lancelot, and Percival on various occasions. Her presence among a triplicity of distinctly Pagan Ladies at the conclusion of the cycle is significant, indeed, and tends to reinforce the idea that Arthur was being prepared by representatives of the Old Path and the New for duty as Champion of Britain.
