“When she went to the King for help, he turned her away.”
— Gwaine on his mother
Gwaine's Mother was the wife of Gwaine's Father and the mother of Sir Gwaine and his sister. Through her marriage, she was a noblewoman. It is unknown whether she was born a noble. She is mentioned by her son when Merlin asked him why he hated nobles so much and Gwaine explains that when his father was killed in battle, his mother went to King Caerleon for help since her husband had left her penniless upon his death and Caerleon turned her away, refusing to help her raise her two young children. It is unknown if she is still alive or if she died at some point.
