CAMELOT...
The very name brings thoughts of times
when Knights of old were brave and bold,
and castes tall did stand, and romance was in the land.
And the bravest of the brave was Arthur Pendragon...
who wooed and won the hand of the fairest in the land..

Guenivire by name...

Just picture you fashion dolls dressed
as these two star crossed lovers...
meeting in front of Arthur's home... Camelot.
Their horses decked out in all the finery of the day.
imagine the thoughts that flew through their minds...
and the thrill of that meeting...
