Enid

"At sunrise, now at sunset, now by night

With moon and trembling stars, so loved Geraint

To make her beauty vary day by day…

the Queen herself…

Loved her, and often with her own white hands

Array’d and deck’d her, as the loveliest,

Next after her own self, in all the court.” — Tennyson


Enid, a loyal friend of Guinevere, almost serves as a foil to the queen. When Enid is falsely accused of being adulterous, she remains faithful and submissive to her husband, withstanding a great deal of abuse. She comes from humble origins but has one of the most noble characters in Arthur’s court.
