 JUST A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON THE LEGEND OF KING ARTHUR

King Arthur was the son of Uther. After Uther's death there was no king ruling all England. A sword had been placed in a stone by Merlin, saying that whoever drew it out would be king. Arthur did so and got himself crowned. This led to a rebellion be eleven rulers which Arthur put down. He married Guinevere whose father gave him the Round Table as a dowry; it became the place where his knights sat, to avoid quarrels over precedence. A magnificent reign followed, Arthur's court becoming the focus for many heroes.


In the war against the Romans, King Arthur defeated the Emperor Lucius and became emperor himself. However, his most illustrious knight, Lancelot, became enamored of Guinevere. The Quest for the Holy Grial began and Lancelot's intrigue with the Queen came to light. He rescued her and took her to his realm. This led King Arthur to crossing the channel and making war on his former knight. While away from Britain, he left Mordred in charge. Mordred rebelled and King Arthur returned to quell him. This led to King Arthur's last battle on Salisbury Plain, where he slew Mordred, but was himself gravely wounded. King Arthur was then carried off on a barge, saying he was heading for the vale of Avalon. Some said he never died, but would one day return. However, his grave was supposedly discovered at Glastonbury in the reign of Henry II.
