King Arthur's existence is a question debated by historians. Geoffrey Monmouth's popular Historia Regum Britanniae from the 12th century is the first narrative account on Arthur's life. However, earlier mentions of him are made in some Welsh and Breton tales and poems.

Good starting point for further Arthur studies are following pages http://www.arthuriana.co.uk/ and
