King Arthur / Camelot games
: Due to varied myth, legend, folklore, and historical sources, information provided here may not be 100% accurate.
Historically known as the Matter of Britain
or more commonly known as the Arthurian Legends
, are Celtic and Welsh based tales surrounding the myth of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table set at the Kingdom of Camelot. Though many historical references note the possible existence of King Arthur and his knights (earliest reference dates to 594? AD), varied sources and numerous retellings (greatly influenced by Christian, Celtic, and Welsh mythology) result in difficulty of identifying historical fact from mythological fiction. Later retellings of the legend were made more popular during the 12th-13th century of medieval chivalry.
