Historians argue as to weather King Arthur actually existed. However most believe he did.
Arthurian legend rose with Geoffrey of Monmouth's 12th century romances, then with Sir Thomas Malory in the 15th century and again in the Victorian era by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
King Arthur is known for his loving rule, his judgement of Lancelot and Quinevere, Camalot, the Holy Grail, the Knights of the Round Table and his skills as a knight.
After King Uther died there was no one on the throne of England.
Merlin placed a sword in a stone, saying that whoever drew it out would be king.
Arthur pulled it out, becoming king.
Arthur had many enemies, the worst of which were his half- sister Morgan le Fay and his nefew Mordred.
Arthur was famous for creating the knights of the round table.
A few of the knights are: Lancelot, Gawain, Galahad, Mordred and Arthur himself.

William Wallace started Scotland's attack against the English for freedom.
Wlliam defeated large portions of the English force and because of this Edward I marched his army to Falkirk where they battled the Scottish and won.
