King Arthur was said to be a great king, who ruled over Camelot in the fifth or sixth century. King Arthur estimated to have been born around 475 A.D., “Tintagel has come to be associated with King Arthur as his birthplace, depicted by the Welsh monk Geoffrey of Monmouth” (Walker para 5). Arthurian Literature commonly depicted daring sword fights, chivalrous knights, damsels in distress and even magic. Though there are few records of a true King Arthur does not mean there is not a man behind the great legend that came forth in the mid twelfth century. “The legend of King Arthur may have been based on the life of one or more Celtic warriors who fought the Anglo-Saxon invaders of England in the late fifth and early sixth century.” (Wiggins 171), this could mean that there was more than one King Arthur in history or more than one inspiration for the legend. Proof that King Arthur was a real person is shown through historical evidence, geographical proof and Arthurian Literature.

The debate on whether or not the legendary King Arthur of Camelot is real or a myth has always been there as long as all of us can remember. We have all heard stories and tales of this legendary King, and by now all of us have tried to understand the controversies behind the story of King Arthur (Gidlow,). The stories from our childhood were filled with legends, gods and fairy tales, and most of these stories were legendary myths, and we understood them as such. However, the case of King Arthur is different since it is not clear whether the story was just a myth or it was something real. The question is, how we can determine whether or not the tale of King Arthur was a myth or real. Currently, there are no scientific facts to support the existence of the legendary king, and this only makes the debate more complicated(Padel).

Arthur demonstrates the qualities of a good leader in Morte d’ Arthur. But not all men can be as strong as Arthur, like Sir Kay and the nobles that are single minded. Sir Thomas made a perfect knight and king in Morte d’ Arthur even though men cannot show these characteristic in that pure form. “And originally knights had few of these qualities” (themiddleages.net). This is where Sir Thomas’s perspective becomes important, his story is an idealized version of a hero and how those times were. Arthur in Morte d’ Arthur is a made up character in a story by Sir Thomas Malory, he is a hero figure showing only the good in men. “Modern scholars have generally assumed that there was some actual person at the heart of the story” (The Camelot

However in the epic poem he was more honest and he kept his word. For example, when Beowulf doesn’t tell the truth about defeating Grendel’s mother, but in the poem he actually defeated her.
