The legend of King Arthur has come down to us out of the dim mists of history. All we know for certain is that when the Romans left Britain a warrior chief led a band of brave followers against the Saxon invaders. Around his heroic deeds grew the legend of Arthur and Excalibar, of Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table.
Like all good legends it has grown with the telling and who is to say that so brave a company would not also have found time to undertake adventurous deeds on behalf of the weak, the poor and the oppressed?
These are some of the stories from the legend. They may not have happened at all, but we can hope they did.
A certain amount of artist's licence has been found necessary in preparing the illustrations, in view of the lack of precise information about the period.
In the hall of his palace old King Uther Pendragon of Britain lay dying.
