From Michael Fraley comes this history of the famous character known as King Arthur. This fully illustrated graphic novel is based on the original adventure of Arthur as written by Geoffrey of Monmouth in the 12th century. Geoffrey's work is considered one of the most important books of the medieval period and served as the basis from which all future Arthurian tales have been created. This was the original work before later authors and Hollywood added their own embellishments. In Geoffrey's work, there was no Camelot, no round table, no Holy Grail, and no Knights of Chivalry. But there is Arthur and this is his tale. It is believed that the character of Arthur was based on a real person that Geoffrey discovered in his research. But that the mentor and magician, Merlin, was a creation of Geoffrey that was added to serve as a narration device for unveiling the tale.
