King Arthur's Death
& How it Happened.
Sir Bedivere throws Excalibur back to the Lady of the Lake
  • Arthur knew he was going to die. He gave Excalibur to Sir Bedivere. He told him to return it to the magical lake.
  • Bedivere pretended to do what he was told; but he hid Excalibur under a bush instead.
  • Arthur asked Bedivere what happened when he threw the sword into the lake. Bedivere said that it sank.
  • Arthur knew he was lying and told him to go and do the job properly.
  • Bedivere threw the sword into the lake. He saw the hand of the ‘Lady of the Lake’ come out of the water to catch it.
  • Three Queens arrived in a boat and took Arthur away to the Isle of Avalon.
  • It is thought that he died there soon afterwards.
