King Arthur is an outstanding British leader of the 5th and the 6th centuries, son of Uther Pendragon and the Lady Igraine. Arthur is one of the greatest mythical heroes that the world has ever known. Arthur has had a great influence on other people and many of them looked up to him. The coming of Arthur was prophesied years before he was even born. Arthur was born into a world of chaos and disorder, full of love and tragedy. Nowadays, many of the scholars continue to argue whether or not King Arthur was a real person or just a mythological figure. Based on facts however, many believe that Arthur was not a real person; just a legendary British leader in the 5th and 6th centuries. According to history, there wasn't anyone named King Arthur
"He was only a man who had meant well, who had been spurred along the course of thinking by an eccentric necromancer with a weakness for humanity. Justice had been his last attempt-to do nothing which was not just. But it had ended in failure" (White, OAFK 634). The "he" in this passage refers to King Arthur, the main character in T.H. White's The Once and Future King and Book of Merlyn, who failed in his attempt to unite England due to the mistakes made by him and those close to him.
Although King Arthur is one of the most well-known figures in the world, his true identity remains a mystery.

It is therefore necessary to look at a few different sources to get better insight into the character of Arthur, the once and future king.

Medieval literature has fascinated me even when I was a child. Something about tales tales of epic quests to recover an ancient artifact or mystical power, or even to take back a Holy Land, these are just a few examples of pieces of literature that excite me. The one thing that excites me more than the quests, are the knights and heroes that are on this voyage. They are so amazing because they are such a diverse group of characters all with different personalities, back stories, and life goals, all bound together as a team to achieve their quest. People like Robin Hood, Beowulf, and the one that stands out to me, King Arthur. King Arthur was...well a King during the fifth while most wars against the Anglo-Saxon tribes were still going on.
In 2017, Warner Brothers produced King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and have plans to continue the story into other Arthurian movies.
