** The dissonance is less serious in that, while the man has committed adultery, he is repentent and vows to remain faithful forevermore. In addition, while Lancelot and Gwenhyver are in love with each other, their love has ''not'' resulted in adultery. Rather, Arthur's realization that his wife loves another more than she loves him is what breaks him; she is still faithful to him.

* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery: On the one hand, Lancelot and Gwenhyver's love affair places a curse of pestilence over the Kingdom of Camelot. On the ''other'' hand, one of the tasks that Arthur must complete is to help a man retrieve his treasured veil so that his wife doesn't find out that he's been cheating with a prostitute. Because man at least seems honestly repentant, forgiving him is a virtuous act on Arthur's part.

* MoralDissonance: Arthur needs to find the Grail because of the pestilence caused by his broken heart (in a type of FisherKing scenario) at the knowledge that Gwenhyver is in love with Lancelot. Once in Palestine, Arthur must help an adulterous man cover his tracks by retrieving a veil from a prostitute so that he can prove to his wife that he's been faithful to her. He gets cleanly away with it, and it has to be done in order to win the game.

* FisherKing: In a sense. It's implied that Arthur's broken heart at the knowledge that Lancelet and Gwynhyver are in love is the cause of the pestilence that destroys Camelot.
