Robyn put me out of my malaise:

>>King Arthur was married to Guinevere.  So far, clear.  But in some modern
>>retelling of his story, he was married to *two* women of that name: first
>>to a sweet child who died in childbirth, and then a bit later to the one
>>who caused all that trouble by having no children and falling in love with
>>someone else.
>>
>>Can someone please tell me which book that's in, and by whom?
>
>I think this is Mary Stewart's version, but I may be wrong.

"durn, of *course*!"

Thank you very much.  One can become entirely furpled by these things...

She herself in her afterword of explanation says only "tradition has it"
that Arthur had two wives of the same name, but gives no source.  Bah.
