Tristan and Iseult both adulterous lovers. It is obvious that some awkward love existed long before now, but does it make it right?
“Love story of Tristan and Iseult has been popularized in the 12th century France. It is thought to be inspired by an older Celtic
legend. There are several versions of the story about the adulterous lovers but they all more or less follow the same outline.
Tristan and Iseult who is supposed to marry Tristan’s uncle King Mark ingest a love potion and fell madly in love on their way to
Cornwall. Iseult marries King Mark but the love potion makes the lovers unable to resist each other. They pursue their affair
until they are finally caught by Iseult’s husband. They manage to escape death but Iseult is forced to return to Mark. Tristan
leaves Cornwall and marries another woman named Iseult. But when he is mortally wounded by a poison lance, he calls for his
only true love. The story ends with Tristan dying of despair, convinced that Iseult does not want to come to him, while Iseult
dies of grief after finding her lover dead.”
