The Knight and the Lion

"The Court at Carduel"

King Arthur held court at Carduel in Wales to celebrate the feast of Pentecost. When the meal was over the knights went with the ladies to talk of the joys and sorrows of love or to tell tales of adventures. To their surprise and annoyance, the King did not join them as he usually did to ask about the marvels that his knights had seen on their travels. No one so much liked to hear about these as the King! Instead he followed Queen Guinevere to their bedchamber , where he stayed so long that he fell asleep.

Do you think there was a real King Arthur?
