    Answer: The answer is:

    What women want.


    In Arthur's court, a young, lusty knight comes across a beautiful young maiden one day and he rapes her.

    Arthur's queen and other ladies of the court intercede on his behalf and ask the king to give him one chance to save his own life. Arthur grants their request. The queen presents the knight with the following challenge: if, within one year, he can discover what women want most in the world and report his findings back to the court, he will keep his life.
