After the unsuccessful retrieval of the Holy Grail, Lancelot du Lac returns to King Arthur’s court. Guinevere, the King’s wife, remains Lancelot’s faithful mistress, leading him to believe that their relationship is the cause of his failure. Jealous of the couple, Mordred plots to break them up.

This 1974 French-Italian movie, produced by Jean-Pierre Rassam and Francois Rochas, is based on Arthurian legend and medieval romances, especially the Grail cycle and the works of Chretien de Troyes.
