Arthur: King of the Britons
Many legends surround the 5th century British monarch King Arthur. The Lady in the Lake, the Sword in the Stone, the Round Table, Merlin, and Lancelot and Guinevere. But what is fact and what is merely apocryphal? This edifying history documentary tries to separate the man from the myth. Was Arthur really a king? Did he even exist at all? And why are so many enduring stories linked to him?
