The Three Living include a crowned queen and a king again, although the central figure is virtually invisible. The king, at the right, has a hawk on his wrist, and the queen wrings her hands, presumably in horror.
As with the Three Dead, the subjects overlap the elaborate painted border at the lower edge, and it is hard to account for this, unless these paintings were forced to fit into a predetermined space too small for them, perhaps one set up by an apprentice hand for the master to complete later. The calamitous 14th century is full of anomalies like this. The painted borders, edged in red ochre, are a feature of most of the other paintings, which include an Annunciation and a now rather obscure but very extensive Life of St. Margaret, on here soon.
