We all know the old story of “King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table“. Written by Roger Lanceyn Green and published in 1953, the summary of his book weaves together the stories from Sir Thomas Malory’s Arthurian chronicle Le Morte d’Arthur with other Arthurian poems and folktales from around Europe. He compiles the stories into a single grand narrative of King Arthur’s rise to power, the gathering of his knights, the quest for the Holy Grail, and Britain’s descent back into darkness.
No one knows that definitive number of Knights that sat at the Round Table, but it thought to have been around 12 (not including the King). The names of the Knights included Sir Tristan, Sir Lancelot, Sir Gawain, Sir Gaheris, Sir Geraint, Sir Percival, Sir Boris the Younger, Sir Lamorak, Sir Kay, Sir Gareth, Sir Bedivere, and Sir Galahad.
