Day 31: King Arthur

Apr 1, 2023

After King Uther Pendragon’s death, there was no known heir, and no king to rule all of England.

Until Merlin engineered the reveal of his bastard son Arthur, through the drawing of the sword in the stone.

Arthur’s crowning led to a rebellion by eleven minor kings, which Arthur soundly defeated. He married Guinevere, and established the Order of the Round Table.  With Merlin’s foresight and influence, Arthur was gifted the fae weapon Excalibur, and conquered a vast empire.

Arthur’s last battle was at Camlann against his traitorous nephew Mordred, in which he was mortally wounded on the battlefield.  He was extracted to the fae land of Avalon, where it is said he passed away.
