The Once and Future King Book 1, Chapter 15

By T.H. White

Book 1, Chapter 15

  • It's Christmas night, and the people of the castle are having a good time. The boys have snowball fights, people are ice-skating on the moat, and even the birds get a feast of crumbs.
  • All of the villagers are treated to a magnificent feast in the castle.
  • We learn that King Pellinore has given up chasing after the Questing Beast, because he's having too much fun staying with Sir Grummore (plus, he gets to sleep in a feather-bed).
  • Several people sing songs (one a slightly risqué ditty about King Cole—apparently a longtime tradition).
  • Sir Ector gives a Christmas speech (which he gives every year), and then everyone sings "God save King Pendragon."
