Brief History Of King Arthur

Not yet rated | write a review
The legend and the facts behind King Arthur.
The story of Arthur, Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table has been handed on by medieval poets and mythical stories - but what if he did indeed reign as a great king in the early years of Britain's story? If so, who was he? And what do the historical documents tell us about him? This lively brief history re-examines the source material and finds clear evidence that the Arthurian legends arose from the exploits of at least three men, originating in Wales, Scotland and Brittany.

Historian Mike Ashley, author of the best-selling A Brief History of British Kings and Queens, establishes that the true historical Arthur did exist, and is distantly related to the British royal family. Ashley's fascinating account provides unexpected, detailed insight into an otherwise mythical figure, often dismissed as chivalric fantsy. Protector, war lord, legen - the true history of King Arthur is more revealing than the fables.
