This heroic journey, probably lost in ages to pass; tells the true origin of King Arthur’s father, a story that is no doubt going to be subjected to the fabrication and the falsehoods by future writers desiring fame and historical significance. These are the real events leading to King Uther Pendragon’s birth, the father of King Arthur, predating all other future recollections, retold by me, Matt Tanzman, a noble and possibly one of the greatest historians and scholars ever in, or likely ever to be in King Arthur’s court. My writing regarding the father of King Arthur’s origin had been made in secret, written in the Latin language to assure secrecy, and hidden away until its’ future potential rediscovery. King Arthur didn’t want this information …show more content…
The Half Century War was fought between two major houses: House Benedict, highborn through the blood of ancient forgotten roman rulers who lay claim to a vast amount of territory acquired south of Hadrian’s Wall. Their sworn enemy, House Aristilcus, migrated to North of the Wall to Edinburgh Castle a century prior to the following events; a three-day travel beyond House Benedict’s castle. The two families were revered and uncontested by all the highborn and nobles in the surrounding territory, no one had dared to attack either House’s infamous unmatched armies. While House Benedict had a tradition of naming children after long dead well-known romans, Aristilcus House’s tradition was to name their children after revered Greek figures to honor their ancestors. The distance needed to travel to get from Alnwick Castle, the Benedict’s estate, and Edinburgh Castle, owned by House Aristilcus was nearly one hundred miles, nonetheless, this territorial distance did nothing to stop the war to …show more content…

Father: Arthur's Father affected him by keeping him in the house and making him anti-social. The legend was that he was cutting papers for his scrapbook and he stabbed his father in the leg and returned to cutting the paper like nothing happened. He was taken to a courthouse and was locked up for a month, then his father said he would take care of everything, and kept him inside of the house. Afterwards, he didn’t come out of the house during the day because his father kept him inside, and prevented him from communicating with people. Because he didn’t go out during the day and also didn’t talk to anyone, he became mysterious to everyone.
A unique sense of diction was used for this common tale to centralize Arthur in an unearthly manner and depict him as a form of evil. Thompsons version that was written in 1868 contains a large sense of antireligion which is widely unpopular at this time due to such a heavy domination of religion.

From this malicious mentality within the work, Knowles had Arthur’s character locked inside for two years where he grew immensely enraged. By exemplifying that “. . .
In this essay, I will not offer an explanation of why people keep retelling, appropriating, and adding to Arthurian legend, because such an answer is far beyond the scope of my knowledge and the size of this essay. It would take at least one penetrating book to begin understanding the scope of that question—which is the reason why Mary Zambreno’s article, “Why Do Some Stories Keep Returning?,” is crippled by its length and loses its grounding by using vague, generalizing definitions to discuss the perpetuity of Arthurian narrative. By opening up Zambreno’s term “gap” and applying possible variations of the term to the context of Chretien’s Lancelot, Knight of the Cart, I hope to introduce the possibility of further scholarship on the ways untold
