In The Once and Future King the portrayal of the Middle Ages is conceived as that of magnificent castles beautiful clothing great kings and queens- everything and everyone perfect No proof of the dirty unjust horrible circumstances that all people lived by- even the nobility- existed throughout the entire novel The people and places in The Once and Future King are so backward that the story could be described as a fairy tale Camelot for one would not have been so gorgeously described and looked upon as a majestic land Towns back then were not pretty Dirt thrived in cities there were diseases and crud everywhere Camelot was also depicted as being in order and just to everyone Communities during the Middle Ages were not orderly They were probably outright chaotic and unjust As far as the king goes he probably did not do much to help the fairness of towns Arthur such a great benevolent king would not have existed back then A great king no doubt probably came to reign a time or two but someone who was so great and did so many things for his kingdom and so influential would not have been formed back then Kings during the time of The Once and Future King were mostly insane or cruel or just should never have been remembered No king ever did so many things that they would have stood out so much as Arthur would have As a queen Guenevere from The Once and Future King did not fit the stereotypical-Middle-Age queen She did not want to marry the king because she did not know him That does not sound so absurd now-a-days but back then if someone did not want to marry the king you were thought of being just as crazy as the king could have been Given the chance to marry into royalty and live as close to as you could easily you would jump
