Welcome to King Arthur’s Knights
Was Arthur a true, historical figure or only a legendary hero?
King Arthur has become the ultimate symbol of light vs darkness and good vs evil. Was he real? Did the knights exist? It’s up to you to decide.
Arthur has come to represent a man who was the epitome of good against evil, light against darkness, and that eternal, never-ending struggle between right and wrong. Many of us only know of King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, and Queen Guinevere, but there were many other characters that were cornerstones to the legends and stories surrounding Camelot, the Round Table, and the Holy Grail.

We offer something for all interests.
