** Some names even have a double meaning. For example, Archimago could be translated as "archmage" or "arch image" (from the Latin ''imago''), describing his identity as EvilSorcerer and master of illusions.

''The Faerie Queene'' is a collection of 6 epic poems (and the few incomplete Mutabilitie Cantos) written by Edmund Spenser as a gift for Queen Elizabeth. The first three books were published in 1590 and the next 3 in 1596. As outlined in a letter to his friend Sir Walter Raleigh, Spenser's plan was to write 24 books -- the first 12 each starring a knight who personifies one of the 12 Private Virtues, and the rest starring the PublicDomainCharacter [[KingArthur Prince Arthur]], who personifies the 12 Public Virtues -- ending with an epic battle against the Faerie Queene's ArchEnemy the Paynim King and her marriage to Arthur. Unfortunately, AuthorExistenceFailure got in the way; thus, we never meet the Faerie Queene in person, and Prince Arthur is never united with his True Love.

* LesYay: Dear God, Britomart and Amoret [[MemeticMutation drink estrogen and piss yuri]]. Let's remember the scene where Amoret agrees to share a bed with Britomart only ''after'' finding out she's a woman.
** While Britomart's homosexuality might be fun to imagine, this particular example is highly likely to simply result from ValuesDissonance. The theme of Britomart's story is "chastity", and, indeed, back in the day for two women to share the same bed was considered chaste. The idea that there might be sexual attraction between them simply didn't occur to the nobility of the era! Amoret is relieved to find out that Britomart is a woman because, by the standards of the period, for her to share her bed with a man who was not her husband would've been a grave sin for both (not to mention all but inviting him to have his way with her - men, after all, are not so normally virtuous).
