King Arthur, medieval tapestry

The legendary King Arthur supposedly defended Britain against the Saxon invaders after withdrawal of the Romans. The Arthurian legend which describes Arthur as noble king and mighty warrior who possessed the miraculous sword Excalibur and ruled from his court in Camelot with his Knights of the Round Table is perhaps based on true story of a British-Roman leader who fought against the invading Saxons in the earl 6th century. However, some scholars claim that Arthurian legend developed from the stories of Celtic mythology.
