The Arthurian Legend wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 06/09/15 12:30AM View full history


A common theory on the origin of the Arthurian legend is that of Lucius Artorius Castus, a Roman soldier of the early 3rd century who led an army of nomadic Iranian (Alan and Sarmatian) knights in the Roman Empire's province of Britannia, defeating the Celtic tribes (of present-day Scotland) who to overrun Britannia (present-day England). Over the centuries, his story was retold in different ways, eventually recasting the Roman Artorius and his Iranian knights as native Britons who defeated the invading Saxons.
