King Loth decides to take his wife and supposed infant son Mordred to Glocedon for safety, but the Saxon King Taurus attacks King Loth and abducts King Loth’s wife.

The letter asks that Mordred and Guenevere be married, so that Lancelot will not attack Britain and try to take Guenevere as his wife. King Caradoc and Heliades, whom Mordred has made King of Scotland, mortally wound one another.

But the following day a knight of Britain, Caradoc arrives, and tells Arthur of the betrayal, that Mordred has dubbed dukes of Denmark, and has many Saxons and Saracens among his men and Chelric is a chieftain among them, lord in Brtain of the lands from Humber to Hawick as well as Kent. That promise was with King Loth, and therefore has no value now that King Loth is dead. Lancelot finds written in the letter that Mordred was sired not by King Loth, but by King Arthur.

Lancelot praises Mordred highly, saying that Mordred’s victory was one of the finest piece of knightly prowess he has seen in a long time, from a knight of Mordred’s age, and the Gawain could well say that Mordred was no disgrace to his lineage, but resembled Gawain in prowess. In Geoffrey and certain other sources such as the Alliterative Morte Arthure, Mordred marries Guinevere, seemingly consensually, after he steals the throne.

It also says that seven kings were killed on King Arthur’s side, along with Yvain son of Urien, Kay of Estral, Dodinel the Wild, and Bran of Lys and a good twenty of the Round Table. He was also the brother or half-brother of Sir Gawain (who defeated the Green Knight through his bravery and honesty), Sir Agravain, Sir Gaheris and Sir Gareth. Geoffrey of Monmouth places the last battle on the River Camel in Cornwall, this possibly explaining the name, Camlann.
