5th century AD, the Roman Empire has just fallen, Christianity is replacing old paganist traditions, and the european warlords sort out their shit with sword and spear. A fascinating period in history that we know little about.

Re: the king arthur myth
the roots of arthur can be traced far back, perhaps
app. 20+ thousand years ago to the ice age.

merlin as lord of beasts, especially the antlered
variety, is a throw back to the earliest settlers
of europe, perhaps the last vestiges of
neanderthal populations, . .passing their
wisdom to the new comers, cro magnons.

guenevere is the flower maiden of spring,
and more, the vegetation goddess of
the planet, the moon maiden of mysteries.

arthur, like odin, the war chief.

basic break down.
have fun, . .the research is the adventure.

It's a tale about the heart of a good King, including loyalty, honor and chivalry. But, as always, man's temptation and sin enter the picture and affects the whole kingdom and even the King himself. In the end, redemption is attained, but nothing is as good as it was before.

Re: the king arthur myth
THe King Arthur myth is based on a real person--the stories are interesting, and retold and slightly altered every time.

My understanding is this was the point in history when pagans became christians. King Arthur was born a pagan and adopted Christianity as an adult.

Merlin was much older than him, yet the TV series is really great with Merlin playing a younger man. Series is called Merlin--lots of it is on youtube and netflix--brit show.

You might enjoy the bestselling book--the mists of Avalon--an interesting take on that time period.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

The book follows the trajectory of Morgaine (often called Morgan Le Fay or Morgan of the Fairies in other works), a priestess fighting to save her matriarchal Celtic culture in a country where patriarchal Christianity threatens to destroy the pagan way of life.[1] The epic is focused on the lives of Gwenhwyfar, Viviane, Morgause, Igraine and other women who are often marginalized in Arthurian retellings. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are supporting rather than main characters.
The Mists of Avalon is in stark contrast to other retellings of the Arthurian tales, which consistently paint Morgaine as a distant, one-dimensional evil witch or sorceress, with no real explanation given (or required) for her antipathy. In this case Morgaine is cast as a strong woman who has unique gifts and responsibilities at a time of enormous political and spiritual upheaval as she is called upon to defend her indigenous matriarchal heritage against impossible odds. The Mists of Avalon stands as a watershed for feminist interpretation of male-centered myth by articulating women's experience at times of great change and shifts in gender-power. The typical battles, quests, and feuds of King Arthur's reign are described as supporting elements to the women's lives. The story is told in four large parts: Book One: Mistress of Magic, Book Two: The High Queen, Book Three: The King Stag, and Book Four: The Prisoner in the Oak.
The novel was a best-seller upon its publication and remains popular to this day. Bradley later expanded the book into the Avalon series.
