* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Hal Foster clearly did a lot of historical research but he wasn't afraid to change things to suit the story. Contemporary historical figures make appearances, archaic place names (like Gaul for France for example) are used, the Western Roman Empire is still hanging on, paganism is still widely practiced in throughout Europe and the clothing worn throughout the series is more-or-less grounded in the Dark Ages/late antiquity. However, popular anachronistic trappings common to Arthurian literature (such as stone castles, chivalry, jousting and the title of knight) are heavily featured. Justifiable, as these elements have become so ubiquitous to Arthurian mythology that their absence would invoke a sense of RealityIsUnrealistic.
