* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: "Gareth and Lynette" ends by saying that Mallory might have paired Gareth with his DistressedDamsel, but Tennyson thinks it's more likely he ended up with the woman he actually spent time with.
-->And he that told the tale in older times\\
Says that Sir Gareth wedded Lyonors,\\
But he, that told it later, says Lynette.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted, sort of. Arthur strongly advocates male chastity and tells Guinevere that he was a virgin before he married her. Similarly, Sir Galahad's purity is linked to his virginity. A number of knights fail to pass this test, though.

Alfred Lord Tennyson's verse narrative ''Idylls of the King'' is inspired by [[KingArthur Arthurian legends]], especially Thomas Malory's ''Literature/LeMorteDarthur''; however, it also draws extensively on the ''{{Mabinogion}}'' and French traditions. The complete ''Idylls'' consists of 12 poems, plus a dedication to the deceased Prince Albert and an epilogue addressed to [[UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria Queen Victoria]]. Tennyson, a longtime enthusiast of the Arthurian tales, worked on the collection for decades: the first four poems appeared in 1859, and the last one in 1885. (In book form, the poems are not in order of writing or publication.)
