How I imagine Gwenhwyfar looks like in the Arthurian Legend
I have been familiar with the Arthurian Legend since a very young age (I was 11 years). I got to the Arthurian Legend 의해 읽기 the poem Gawain and the Green Knight. Because I wanted to know 더 많이 about him I read the Arthurian Legend the Welsh version - in which he has a 더 많이 expand story line . As I read the Welsh version of the Arthurian Legend I came across the fair goddess-queen named Gwenhwyfar (or at least its Anglicized form of 'Guinevere'). I immediately liked her. I enjoyed 읽기 about her as this noble, fair 퀸 who represented the authority of Arthur's reign. The spirit of Brittia. Gwenhwyfar became a great role model to me as I became older. Later on I decided to read the 인기 version of the Arthurian Legend. The french one. Le Modre Arthur. And I couldn't have been 더 많이 truly disappointed on the take of the queen. They where nothing alike. It was a pure insult to the woman I idolized so long. In fact I personally find the french version of the Arthurian Legend pretty much anti-woman. Almost every woman of it is portrayed negatively. After this I still watched and read other versions of the Arthurian Legend 의해 hoping. But every time I was disappointed over and over again. Countless times I had to 곰 to see Gwenhwyfar's name to be humiliated.
When I watched this show for the first time I was of course skeptical on their take of Guinevere/Gwenhwyfar. My this show truly took me at surprise. I was surprised that Gwen was a handmaiden in the first place. I was shocked to see that these writers where probably heading to a Arthur/Guinevere 사랑 story.
I came to 사랑 Gwen in this show as the adorable, awkward and shy young girl as my 가장 좋아하는 character of this show. As I watched Guinevere grow as a person to the 퀸 she is destined to be I couldn't be 더 많이 happier that this Guinevere would be 더 많이 like Gwenhwyfar then any other.
Sure when it comes to appearance Guinevere and Gwenhwyfar couldn't be any 더 많이 different. While Gwenhwyfar has golden hair Guinevere has brown hair. While Gwenhwyfar has a pale skin (her name means blessed white spirit) Guinevere has a far 더 많이 darker skin. While Gwenhwyfar is a tall woman (her father has the nickname giant) this version Guinevere is far 더 많이 shorter. But when it comes to personality Guinevere and Gwenhwyfar are truly alike like no other.
