The truth about women

The young King Arthur was surprised and imprisoned by the monarch of the neighboring kingdom while hunting furtively in their forests. The king could have killed him in the act, because such was the punishment for those who violated the laws of property, but was moved by the youth and sympathy of Arthur and offered him freedom, as long as within a year he found the answer to a question. The question was: What does the woman really want?

Such a question would perplex even the wisest man and young Arthur found it impossible to answer. However, that was better than hanging, so he returned to his kingdom and began to question people. To the princess, to the queen, to the monks, to the wise men and to the jester of the court … in short, to all but nobody could give a convincing answer. Of course, everyone advised him to consult the old witch, because only she would know the answer. The price would be high, since the old witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant price she charged for her services.

The last day of the agreed year arrived and Arturo had no choice but to consult the sorceress. She agreed to give him a satisfactory answer on the condition that she first accept the price: she wanted to marry Gawain, the noblest knight of the Round Table and the closest friend of Arthur! The young Arthur looked at her horrified: she was hunchbacked, ugly, had only one tooth, gave off a stench that gave nausea, to obscene noises … He had never encountered such a disgusting creature. He cowards at the prospect of asking his lifelong friend to take on that terrible burden. However, upon learning of the proposed agreement, Gawain said that it was not an excessive sacrifice in exchange for the life of his friend and the preservation of the Round Table.
