Enter a world of duels and jousting, where knights battle to protect the honor of fair maidens and defend King Arthur's castle. Knights meet in fellowship at Camelot, and are entertained with feasting and pageantry. Honor and chivalry are valued above all else, and courageous knights fight strange, unearthly foes to prove themselves worthy of a place at King Arthur's table.
These ancient tales have been told since the fifth century when Welsh bards traveled the country entertaining lords and ladies with stories and songs. They were retold in verse by Chretien de Troyes in his twelfth-century Le Morte d'Arthur, and in prose by Sir Thomas Malory in the fifteenth century.
