Gwynevere, Princess of Sunlight


Gwynevere is the daughter of Lord Gwyn, making her the Princess of Sunlight. She appears as a giant woman draped in cloth, resting in her chamber.

This Gwynevere is actually an illusion created by Dark Sun Gwyndolin. The real Gwynevere is currently not in Lordran, having married the flame god Flann.


Anor Londo
Her chamber is next to the bonfire at the second floor of Dragon Slayer Ornstein & Executioner Smough's boss room. You can only access the second floor after you defeat Ornstein & Smough.

Consequences of Killing Gwynevere


  • Gwyndolin's voice can be heard upon killing Gwynevere, indicating control over the sunny illusion. However, killing Gwyndolin first won't prevent Anor Londo from darkening when killing Gwynevere. Although for obvious reasons you won't hear Gwyndolin's voice.
  • If you choose to kill Gwynevere and/or Gwyndolin, Lady of the Darkling will turn hostile and attempt to attack you on the other side of the twisting tower (same level that you fought the first gargoyle). Avoiding the Lady of the Darkling fight allows you to continue using the Anor Londo bonfire.
  • You can kill Gwynevere from outside her chamber with a ranged weapon. If you do this, no cutscene of Anor Londo becoming dark (and Gwyndolin berating you) will play, and Anor Londo will remain lit upon future visits. However, if her chamber is entered at any point after she is killed, the cutscene will play, Anor Londo will become dark, and you will get the Lordvessel if you don't already have it.
  • Be aware that if you kill Gwynevere, the automatic respawn point will be the first bonfire you arrive at in Anor Londo, regardless of the last bonfire you rested at. Summoned phantoms are not affected by this however, whether they are victorious or not. This holds true if you only kill Lady of the Darkling too, even if Gwynevere and Gwyndolin are still alive. Homeward will always warp you back to the Anor Londo Bonfire.
  • Although in the dialogue she uses the title of "Queen of Sunlight", this is a mistranslation from the original Japanese text (太陽の光の王女), which translates as "Princess of the Sunlight". Interestingly the only instance in Japanese in which Gwynevere's title is different, is in the "Ring of the Sun Princess" (太陽の王女の指輪) which is translated correctly.
