* SeriousBusiness: Carts are the devil, who knew?knew? Lancelot gets shamed by basically the entire universe for riding in a cart (except Guinevere, who shames him for ''waiting'' to get in the cart).

Chrétien de Troyes was a French poet in the late 12th century, most well known for his [[KingArthur Arthurian romances]]. He introduced the [[LoveTriangle affair between Queen Guinevere and Lancelot]] and the FisherKing into the Arthur mythos, and greatly influenced later writers. His {{epic poem}}s about Knights of the Table Round were seminal works of the ChivalricRomance genre, and [[FollowTheLeader emulated countless times]] by later poets.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In his time, criticism of the ruling court was.. unwise. de Troyes gets around this by combining two tropes. First, it was certainly common opinion that the GoodOldWays were [[AppealToTradition better]], so even the aristocracy of the day would agree that Arthur and his advisers were more noble, more courtly, more enlightened. After driving that uncontroversial point home, de Troyes then mentions how the court of Arthur was not that interesting most of the time, filled with petty bickering, people waiting for things to happen, and Arthur himself falling asleep at the table out of boredom. It was his way of saying "these guys certainly had their problems, and you're nowhere near as good as they were."
