  • Yes I do believe that there was a King Arthur and that he was probably the King that the Legion is based on.  However, most of the fact has been distorted and embellished over the centuries. So much so that the reality will bear little resemblance to the myth we all know and love.

  • There is evidence of a very early king named Arthur. That has never been in dispute.

  • I believe there's some truth to the story in original form, but the original form bears little resemblance to what's normally seen in all the made for tv movies.

  • I believe the stories may have some truth to them. But the real characters, however real they were, were definitely very different from how we know them.

  • There's usually at least a little truth behind the best legends, so yes, I think there is some historical truth to a little bit of it.

  • Marwill is correct and IF I'm remembering correctly he would have been a Bronze age king? Likely of overlord of a band of other smaller tribes...did camelot exist as portrayed in the middle ages; no...

  • Just like the Bible, I believe the stories of Arthur were based on a few true events, real people, and then embellished over the years.
