She then bid Arthur farewell, and she and her men left Camelot in peace (The Hunter's Heart). After Uther’s death, Gwen is one of the people who watch Arthur being crowned King of Camelot (The Wicked Day). Pleased, she told Arthur that he'd given the people hope for the future and that she was proud of him (Another's Sorrow). This could be one of the reasons why he fell in love with her. Though their courtship was complicated by their differing social classes (and later by interference from Morgana), they were ultimately married in the final episode of series 4. He became further convinced when Gaius examined the ailing villagers and discovered that their illness had probably been caused by a Lamia, a dangerous creature of magic that could control men and suck the life out of them.

As she sat at his bedside, she told him that she knew he would someday be a great king, greater than his father could ever be, and that he would create a Camelot that was fair and just and that would make the people proud to call him their sovereign. With no time to lose, Gwen took it upon herself to make Arthur stop the execution. Gwen tells Gaius that she is only doing it for Arthur’s sake and not Uther’s. There, Arthur conducted the first meeting of the Round Table, wherein he revealed his intentions to infiltrate the citadel and free his father from captivity. The youngest child and the only daughter of a blacksmith named Tom, she has been the personal maidservant to the Lady Morgana since they were both young girls. The meeting went badly and ended in a battle, during which the young knight Mordred was mortally wounded trying to protect Arthur. Sefa's love for Ruadan may have reminded Gwen about the loss of her own father although that didn't stop her from sending knights to kill Ruadan, whom she knew was a threat to Camelot. Arthur eventually survives the match and becomes at peace with Caerleon. Merlin asks why she is so worried, saying that everybody does it, but Gwen replies with 'not in front of people they have feelings for!' She planned to escape and meet up with Arthur somehow, and was finally presented with an opportunity to do so when Morgana allowed her to talk with Sir Leon. He later was present at both Gwen's wedding and coronation watching on proudly. Arthur has gone to great lengths to ensure Gwen’s safety; going against his father’s orders to rescue her (Lancelot and Guinevere), making Merlin promise to protect her should anything happen to him, and was willing to risk his life when The Great Dragon attacked her. Gwen later told Arthur that the idea of her and Arthur being together was insane to anyone apart from the two of them (although this wasn’t quite true as Merlin and Gaius approved of their relationship). When Morgana was taken away by Morgause, Gwen was very worried about her and missed her a lot.

Determined that Gwen would never sit upon her throne, Morgana set out to end their relationship once and for all. Seeing that she was upset, Arthur tried to comfort her by asking her to smile, but Gwen replied that she couldn't. Arthur immediately went to his father and informed him that Gwen was missing. Devastated and more than a little panicked, Gwen pleaded for him to reconsider and reminded him that she had nowhere else to go, but Arthur's decision was final.

Once she was sure she had Uther's attention, she subtly suggested that Arthur may have been enchanted, and the king wasted no time in having Arthur's chambers searched.

Uther was rather amused by his son's indiscretion at first, wryly noting that he'd been young himself once and knew the temptations of serving girls.

Gwen quickly grows to like Lancelot and also begs him not to go out to attack the Griffin, fearing that it will cost him his life.

Gwen burst into tears upon learning of his departure, and at this point seemed to share a stronger romantic bond with Lancelot than with Arthur. The night before her wedding, Lancelot arranged to meet Gwen in the council chambers.

From a window Uther watches as Morgana and Gwen wander through the courtyard, looking downcast. And god, those eyes that catch Morgana’s beating heart in their shimmering depths entice her to try a hand at gardening once more. She tried to subtly manipulate them into spending more time together, telling them each how sad it was that they had to hide their feelings and couldn't be more open. Flattered, Gwen innocently remarked that she knew of no such person, and Arthur cheekily agreed, remarking that only time would tell (The Changeling). Gwen was sad when Lancelot left Camelot, thinking she would never see him again but they were later reunited while Gwen was the prisoner of Hengist. Gwen was reluctant at first, as she was worried about what would happen if someone saw them, but Merlin assured her that the date would be secret. Later, while examining the dead sorcerer's body, Gwen and Gaius discovered a scrap of paper hidden in a locket that he wore around his neck. Noticing Arthur's shocked expression at being spoken to in such a way, she then finished her rant by telling him that she knew she was just a servant but she'd thought he was a prince, so he should start behaving like one. She told him that he didn't need to prove anything, least of all to her, but Arthur replied that he had everything to prove to himself and was determined to go on with it. Arthur, who had also found Gwen’s ring in the forest, also realizes that he still has feelings for her and ended his potential relationship with the beautiful Princess Mithian, saying that he still has feelings for her.

She was able to help Merlin and Lancelot when they needed armour and weapons and made a key to free Sir Leon from the dungeons after Morgana conquered Camelot for the first time. He then explained that there was a prophecy that Arthur would die by a Druid's hand, which left Gwen uneasy (Arthur's Bane). Gwen went about her normal routine as she waited for the witch to contact her. The queen was shocked to find herself no longer in Camelot and immediately rounded on Arthur, demanding to know what he'd done to her. He made it clear that Gwen's name was never to be mentioned again, or else Merlin would join her in exile. She believed him to be an arrogant bully, and couldn't imagine anyone wanting to marry him (The Dragon's Call). She told him that she knew he didn't want to go through with it, but the way things were going he would probably have to. She asks Gaius whether he knows who the sorcerer is.

Before he leaves to confront Nimueh Merlin tells Gwen that she should never lose her good heart (Le Morte d'Arthur). Gwen eventually dueled Morgana in Camelot, and asked her why she hated her so much. Still hopeful, Arthur tried to convince her otherwise by pointing out that things could change, but Gwen replied that until they did she was still just a servant, and they could not be together (Sweet Dreams). Arthur was comforted by her words, and the two shared a tender moment during which Arthur covered her hand with his own. As Gwen struggled against these nightmarish visions, Arthur and the Knights were trying to hack their way through the Impenetrable Forest.

As he scanned the ground for tracks, Arthur discovered Gwen's engagement ring (which had been taken from her by Morgana) abandoned on the forest floor. The night before the battle, Gwen found Arthur brooding in their tent, wondering if it'd been a mistake to bring the battle to Camlann.
