The Legend of King Arthur, History Documentary

King Arthur, the mythological figure associated with Camelot, might have been based on a 5th or 6th century British warrior who staved off invading Saxons. King Arthur is a medieval, mythological figure who was the chief of the kingdom Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. It is not known if there was a real Arthur, though it is believed he may have been a Roman-affiliated military leader who successfully staved off a Saxon invasion.
