  • I believe the legends are at least partly true, but the happened so long ago there is no way to be sure where the "reality" stops and the legend begins. There is also no way of knowing what actually happened that might have been interpreted much differently in the more scientific and knowledgeable world of today.

  • I think it would qualify as a "tall tale". Tall tale: narrative that depicts the wild adventures of extravagantly exaggerated folk heroes.

    While King Arthur and his court may have been real, I think in the passing down of the story, their exploits have probably been wildly exaggerated.

  • Somewhere in between. The people were real, the legends may have been exaggerated just a wee bit.

  • Somewhere in between.  A little bit of fact with a whole lot of embellishment.

  • A really great story, nothing more. Much like Paul Bunyon.

  • I think there is some truth in it but probably far too little to call the ledgends true

  • somewhere in between but leaning towards fact. i think Arthur, Merlin, Camelot & the like were real ppl who did good things, but im not sure if ALL the stuff we hear about them is true. the stuff i believe is more along the lines of the movie "King Arthur" that came out in 2004.
