This paper is a study on Lancelot's self-awareness in Tale 3 of Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur.Lancelot’s adventures in Tale 3 imply that the king’s subjects ought to exercise self-awareness in going beyond their prescribed duties and contribute towards the collaborative effort to sustain the kingdom. Through relating this implication in Tale 3 to the depiction of the kings’ failings in Tale 1, Malory’s text can be said to intimate that the sustainment of a kingdom goes beyond establishing a rightful leader.
