Transcript of King Arthur
A nonhistorical story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical. Early life
Uther and his wife had an affair and Uther had a baby with Igraine, Arthur. Uther had to go fight the Saxons so Uther gave Arthur to Merlin. He sent him to the contryside to grow up with his foster brother Kay. 1 2 When King Uther died no one knew he had a son. The people wondered who would be the next king. The people then found a huge rock and sticking out of it was a sword. There was a message on the sword that said whoever pulls the sword from the stone will be the next king. Everyone tried to pull it out, but no one is able to. Arthur pulls it out and the people are amazed. 3 Merlin took Arthur to a lake where The Lady of the Lake lived under the water. She gave Arthur a magic sword called "Excalibur." Arthur is finally king of Camelot.
a little later he married Guinevere. She was the daughter of King Leodegrance As a present, he gave them a round table. 4 5 6 All the knights in Camelot wanted to be soldiers for King Arthur. The best were allowed to sit at the round table. They were called "Knights of the Round Table." The positions of all the seats were equal, so no one sat at the head. 7 8 9 10 Merlin falls in love with Vivien, a sorceress. Vivien was raised by the Lady of the Lake. Merlin said he would never use enchantment against Vivien, so she trapped him in a magical cave and he could not use his powers to get out. Lancelot and Guinevere were in love. One day Mordred saw them together and he told king Arthur. The King was so mad he wanted to burn Guinevere. Lancelot comes and saves her and brings her to Brittany. King Arthur goes there to find them. King Arthur left Mordred in charge while he was in Brittany. Mordred told everyone that King Arthur had been killed and Modred was crowned king. Arthur heard this and came back and a war started. Arthur did not have Excalibur because Morgan le Fay had it. King Arthur killed Mordred but Mordred left King Arthur badly wounded. Arthur knew he was dieing, so he gave Excalibur to Sir Bedivere. He told him to return it to the lake. Bedivere did not do what he was told but instead hid Excalibur. Arthur knew he didnt return it so he told him again. The second time he did return it to the lake and three queens came in a boat and took king Arthur away. When they are in Europe, all knights ride around searching for the Holy Grail. When they found it only a few were there to see the Grail. Sir Lancelot, Sir Percival, Sir Bors and Sir Galahad were the lucky ones that got to see it. Once they had the grail they took it back to Arthur so he would be healed
