That Iseut is banished is a more serious matter than the other two incidents because in this case, love gone wrong has led to political violence. For this reason, it is crucial that Mark differentiate between Iseut and Tristans mistakes (since she is so loyal to her King) and Iseuts true culpability (which is what the banished Tristan lacks). If Isoldes innocence were really in question, then Tristan would be either completely exonerated or punished with death.
Gisele does not appear in the tale of Iseult and Tristan. She is Isolde and her daughter. She has the deed made out in both their names as shown in Romes original manuscript. The testament in Romes manuscript reads as follows:
Iseult has become ill, and is now dying. She therefore desires to put her affairs in order and dispose of her goods before she dies. She abandons her child to the King and commands him to make the necessary arrangements for the marriage of her daughter, if he so chooses, to Tristan.
If she had lived, Iseult would have beenqueen of Gaul and Tristan would have been king. When Isoldes death is announced to Mark, Tristan is assumed to have died as well, and Gisele and her daughter are sent back to Brittany. It is important to know why Gisele wants to marry her daughter to Tristan. The future kings of Brittany are the descendants of that marriage. If Iseult were to die as well, this would mean that the crown would pass to the King of France.
Gisele commands her daughter to offer to the King of Brittany to marry her and so claims the throne for Tristan. King Mark might have loved this idea, but it doesnt appeal to her conscience, as she is a child of another marriage. She tells the King to make Gisele daughter her daughter instead.
The armed knights were on duty on all the threshing days. Those were the days when the threshed grain was given to the peasants. The day before the threshing feast, Tristan arrived with his armed retainers. He had heard that Iseut was going to visit the Blanche Lande to get the game he had promised. He guessed that this would be the day when she would return. He rode a great distance, but the place was invisible to him. He dismounted and he and his men began to set up a watch. The night passed. When he saw dawn approaching, he asked whether anybody was awake. The watchman replied that the threshing feast was about to begin. Tristan was ready, in his desire for vengeance. The gamekeeper asked him why he was seeking trouble? Then he told him about his plan to eliminate Iseut. He told Tristan to wait for the feast to end, when Iseut would be returning. Tristan told him that there was nothing for him to fear if Iseut realized he was there before she returned. The gamekeeper only made fun of Tristan. He told him that he could not kill Iseut without royal permission, and that King Arthur was well-known for destroying the lives of the innocent. Tristan believed that he had the authority to kill Iseut. King Mark struck Tristan with a lance, and vowed to kill him. But, as Sargent-Baur notes, Tristan is not a narrative focusing solely on the romance between Tristan and Iseut. It is a chivalric romance in which many other characters die at one point or another. The lovers are ambushed by King Mark, who is enraged at the sight of the queens reflection in the water of the fountain in the garden. Tristan has already been mortally wounded by King BrulO 5ec8ef588b
