Who was the real King Arthur? What do the historical documents tell us about the knight of the Round Table? Is it just a chivalric fantasy? Mike Ashley revisits the source material and uncovers unexpected new insights into the legend. There is clear evidence that the Arthurian legends arose from the exploits of not just one man, but at least three originating in Wales, Scotland, and Brittany. The true historical Arthur really existed and is distantly related to the present royal family in England.
