This storyboard does not have a description.
Before this tale can begin I will give a brief explanation on what is a moral tale and a legend! A moral tale is when a message is conveyed or a lesson is learned from a story or event. A legend is a traditional story that is popularly regarded as historical but unauthenticated.
What's so cool about the King Arthur legend is that there are multiple versions and they are all so different because they are written by different authors. They create different parts in the stories to make Arthur seem different each time you hear about him. If you look at the tale of the great Beowulf, he is a very strong warrior that defeated countless monsters while our great King Arthur is much more complicated. They have their differences but they are both great rulers that will do anything to protect their people from harm.
In one version of Morte D'Arthur, which is very well known by the way, is that Gwenyvere betrays him and has a affair with Lancelot and when she is sentenced to burn at the stake, Lancelot rescues her and afterwards Arthur declares war on him because of his betrayal. Some other versions also include that Gwenyvere was a 12 or 13 year old and Arthur was an older man. Arthur left in search of the Holy Grail and left her all alone all those years. I guess he should asked his trusty knight, Sir Veillance, for help.
Different stories may sometimes have different settings such as in Morte D'Arthur it takes place in places like England, Ireland, Cornwall, France and Western Europe in the middle ages.
There are many characters in the King Arthur legends such as: Arthur, Uther Pendragon(Arthur's dad), Merlin, Lot,Mordred, Lancelot, Gwenyvere, Igrayne, Gawain, Gareth, Gaheris, Percival, Lady of the Lake, and so many more!
People were all united by the common theme that King Arthur was a fifth century British General who fought against Anglo-Saxon tribes and ensured that Britain remained a paradise of the West. The first mention of King Arthur is in the History of the Britons, penned in 830, and attributed to an author called Nennius.
So basically the reason there are so many theories about King Arthur has to do with the fact that multiple authors wrote different versions on how they come across each legend they hear so we get to basically hear their view on Arthur himself.
