In this feature-length exploration of the Arthurian medieval myths, The History Channel examines the historical facts, and illuminates the contemporary quest by researchers to establish if the 6th-century warlord truly existed.
- Follow historians and archeologists as they search for evidence of Arthur.
- An epic quest for the truth about the most famous king in history.
- See how a 12th century cleric created a vision of royalty that persists to this day.
In a country that has seen more than its share of storied monarchs, he reigns supreme. His name conjures up visions of chivalry and honor, his kingdom symbolizes all that is right and good, and his exploits are celebrated in story, song and celluloid. But did he ever exist?
QUEST FOR KING ARTHUR traces the many threads that make up the Arthurian tapestry, examining the exploits of historical figures like the Roman commander Artorius Castus and the influential works of Geoffrey of Monmouth and Sir Thomas Malory. But the "real" Arthur remains elusive, even as different visions of the mythic king come into focus. Drawing on ancient accounts and the latest theories of today's scholars, QUEST FOR KING ARTHUR crosses the British Isles to illuminate a hero who may never have existed.
