Can King Arthur be Reincarnated as a female?
I'm not referring this question to the movie Avalon made by Disney.
My curiosity is just running a bit.
I just want to know if King Arthur returns if there could be a possibility that he returns as a woman.
Joanna, sorry to be the one to tell you but King Arthur is a FICTIONAL character. But if you want the answer on a spiritual level, then yes, certainly! A soul in a male body can return in whatever sex he/she/it chooses. Most folks prefer one sex for a certain length of time but we all experience both sexes -it is something that we all need to go through in our journey of spiritual unfoldment and growth. Some souls are focused on one sex but are so eager to return that they choose the opposite sex and many times exhibit characteristics of the wrong sex. This is the reason that there are effeminate gay men and masculine women. Now supposing King Arthur came back as a woman, SHE most likely would have no memory of being King Arthur. It's called the "veil of forgetfulness" and its' purpose is to allow us new experiences and sometimes re-doing a previous "test" until we get it right! If we remembered, it wouldn't be a test ! However, many children have memories of their previous life but it fades as they grow older like at age 12 or so. Few adults remember but if you choose a spiritual path, you can be allowed to glimpse IT, or other lives. This can help you understand the reasons why you feel certain ways or why certain things are happening to you! Karma! Although I am a heterosexual male, I was a woman in my previous life and connected to my existing family. We generally keep re-incarnating with a certain group of souls. To work off Karma and because we love them! Life on earth is going very fast so most souls come back very soon after their passing to take advantage of it. OK -enough for now. -Best Wishes.

Does Lancelot promise to wed Guinevere in King Arthur and his Knights?
At any point in King Arthur and His Knights, the Mallory version, does Lancelot promise to come back and ask Guinevere to marry him?
Though I haven't gone all through and re-read every page of Malory's Arthurian books to check, the odds of Lancelot promising at anytime to wed Guinevere seem awfully slim.
Lancelot was at all time's Arthur's friend and truest knight, despite his desperate and illicit love for the queen. Even after Arthur's death, Lancelot would not have wed or promised to wed Guinevere, since to do so would have sullied Arthur's memory and, in a sense, condoned the love affair which brought about the end of Arthur and the Round Table.
What is a good book on King Arthur?
I'm looking to read a really good book on King Arthur. I would love one thats closest to the original, but any is fine as long as it isn't a children's book.
The classic: Le Morte de Arthur by Mallory, but it is *tough going*. I believe that it's Middle English, and you need a good edition (like the Oxford Classics) with footnotes - and you have to read the footnotes to really understand the story. Nevertheless, this is the reference edition.
The excellent few - the following are all that I have read that qualify as "excellent"
The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White - best starter book for any British Knight enthusiast. Humorous, but *really* excellent. Although *strictly speaking* a childrens' book (young teens, maybe), this is *the best* Arthurian Knights book in print.
Also excellent is T H White's "The Once and Future King", but I hesitate to recommend it because it contains a poorly reworked version of The Sword and the Stone. Under *no circumstances* should you read the sub-sub-par "Sword in the Stone" found in "The Once and Future King" before reading the *original* Sword in the Stone found under separate cover. The rest of the book is excellent , though not as good as the original Sword in the Stone or the Steinbeck below.
This http://www.amazon.com/Acts-King-Arthur-Noble-Knights/dp/0374523789 by *the* John Steinbeck. This is the best serious King Arthur story I have ever read. Steinbeck was attempting to re-write Le Morte de Arthur but died before he finished. Nevertheless, it's the best (except for The Sword in the Stone above).
The Mabinogian - ancient welsh fairy tales translated into English, including some of the earliest Arthur tales. Get a good, scholarly translation - I have http://www.bestwebbuys.com/books/compare/ISBN/0375411755/isrc/w-home-search .
That's about it. I've read several good to very good series about Arthur over the years, but *none* of them hold a candle to those above. The only one I remember that I *might* qualify as *very good* - Mary Stewart's books "The Crystal Caves" and "The Hollow Hills" - from Merlin's point of view, quite a bit of originality in Merlin's background but the author is too-obviously female (for Merlin) and the later books are disappointing (probably because Merlin's background is finished).
