Fully initiated members of the secret societies are involved in human sacrifice and even the consumption of human blood and flesh. Barack Obama sacrificed a woman named Miriam Carey using electronic weaponry and witchcraft.
The fellowship of the Round Table was a brief beginning, a fair time that cannot be forgotten. And because it will not be forgotten that fair time may come again.
Now once more I must ride with my knights to defend what was Judging by number of manuscripts, it was the most popular of the three; there are even such romances written in Hebrew. A somewhat tragic figure, Arthur is the rightful heir to the throne in most versions of the mythos, who brings order to the land by defeating his rivals and other threats — and then tries his best to be a good ruler, assembling the Knights of the Round Table to serve as paragons of chivalry.
His rule is ultimately undone by the plots and shortcomings of his own followers and family. Authors eventually expanded this to include his own failings as a husband in trying to be the perfect king, as he is caught up in a Love Triangle with Guinevere, his queenand Lancelot, his best knight.
Nevertheless, the romantic Arthurian legend stands for all that was noble and good in the medieval ideal of chivalry, and of how a perfect king should be: Some of the legends also foretell his return to Britain in its greatest hour of need. For the character of King Arthur in his many incarnations, see Arthur Pendragon.
If he existed, the historical Arthur may have been a Romano-British leader who fought the invading Anglo-Saxons after the Roman provincial government collapsed during The Early Middle Ages. The Anglo-Saxons eventually controlled most of Britain, and the name England is derived from them.
Indigenous British hegemony was reduced to a few regions like Wales and Cornwall and other Britons had by then migrated to Brittany in France where they were known as Bretons.
According to historical accounts of the period, the Anglo-Saxon conquest was turned back for a generation or two after the British defeated them at the Battle of Mount Badon in the 6th century AD.
In later sources, the leader of the British is said to be Arthur. However, Arthur is not mentioned in the nearest contemporary source dealing with these events, De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae "On the Ruin and Conquest of Britain" by the monk Gildas.
Instead the British leader not called a king resisting the Anglo-Saxons is named Ambrosius, though there is some debated ambiguity about whether Gildas had a Time Skip between his era and the Mount Badon battle. This has led to many, many debates whether Arthur was really a historical person or a legendary person added to history.
Scholars who believe Arthur was or at least based on a real historical figure note that the Battle of Mount Badon was associated with him early on. Arthur also appears in the 10th-century Annales Cambriae "Annals of Wales" which mentions his triumph at Mount Badon and his final battle at Camlann.
He also features in 9th and 10th-century British and Breton stories about local saints. Arthur and his men, often with magic items and powers of their own, appear as adventurers facing not only normal human foes but also fantastic creatures like giants, witches and monsters. The Arthurian myth became even more popular during The High Middle Ages after Historia Regum Britanniae "History of the Kings of Britain"written by Geoffrey of Monmouth in the 12th century, brought it to a wider European audience and inspired a slew of other writers.
Geoffrey presented Arthur as the ultimate warrior-king who carved out an empire with his Cool Sword Caliburn better known as Excalibur and almost conquered Rome, but whose reign was cut short by treachery - and after his last battle, was taken to the island of Avalon for healing.
These writers reworked or invented entirely new characters, most famously Lancelot and Perceval and later Galahad, to introduce them. Their adventures tended to overshadow Arthur himselfwhose earlier feats were lost in translation.
Thanks to these and other authors, the Arthurian myth became popular throughout much of Europe, far beyond its original British scope. French writers, despite patriotic liking for the Matter of France, agreed that the King Arthur tales were among the best ones of Courtly Love.
Also, since their nobles and kings were actually related to Charlemagne and some of his knights, and more claimed to be, even to the fictional ones, tales about King Arthur were safer from people reading political implications into them.
Such attempts, however, derived from the legend, as opposed to Charlemagne. In the English-speaking world, the medieval version best known today is Le Morte Darthur by Sir Thomas Malorybased on the works of his many, many literary predecessors, including multiple layers of retcons and crossovers.
This version incorporates many originally separate stories about the Knights of the Round Table, and other legends such as Gawaine and the Green KnightCourtly Loveand the myth of the Holy Grail. Malory wrote it in The Late Middle Agesand thus his work is often considered the "final" pre-modern form of the myth.
This is not founded on priority, but also on the superior literary quality of these four authors in comparison with their successors. In general, the way the Arthurian myth is viewed can depend very much on the nationality of the viewer; for people from the British Isles and by extension, from the rest of the Anglosphereit usually goes without saying that the Welsh and English medieval texts reflect an older and more "genuine" version of the myth than the French ones, even though they were in fact written down later.UPDATED: 12/20/17 ***** NOTE: I do not own the copyrights to any of the material listed on this page.
