Lady Juliana is a strong-willed and hardworking wife and mother. She is quite capable of managing the farm whilst her husband is away, and after he passes on as well.

However, she still has faith that her daughter is capable of finding Excalibur and surviving on her own. She is also very proud of her when she saves Camelot and is knighted by the king. Julianna is also brave; after her initial shock, she shows little fear in Ruber's presence, standing up to him; saying she would rather die than help him. Juliana does express fear for her daughter's safety, however, both when Ruber threatens her and when she leaves to try and save Camelot. Julianna is apparently quite loyal to Arthur and Camelot, as she is prepared to die rather than betray them. However, her family's safety comes first.
