Guinevere receives a message from her aunt that her father is dying and she immediately leaves to be by his side. All of the warriors, including Leontes, are away from Camelot. She realizes the risk but decides to go without escort, traveling through unsafe lands, to reach her father's side. When Arthur hears of this, he sets out after her. He catches up with her, but she refuses to come back to Camelot with him - if she does, she may be too late. Arthur has no choice but to travel with her.
