* ExposedToTheElements: The Woads, definitely, but justified by their portrayal as [[BarbarianTribe tough barbarians]]. Less justifiably, Galahad seems happy to wander through the cold in a short-sleeved tunic and a kilt.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The movie's claim to be the [[{{Demythtification}} true story]] behind the King Arthur legends is best taken with a grain of salt.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The movie's claim to be the [[{{Demythtification}} true story]] behind the King Arthur legends is best taken with a grain of salt. For a start, the claim the film opens with, saying most historians agree Arthur is based on a real man, isn't true. It's highly disputed if there is any historical basis for Arthur at all, and if so, what the details were. There is also no archaeological evidence recently discovered about him.


Added DiffLines:

** The late Roman Church is depicted more like the medieval one, punishing heretics with death. At the time however, they did not do this (though some advocated it). Thus the real Pelagius was merely exiled. Also, pagans in Britain at the time were few, as the country was heavily Christianized. Though pagans were sometimes persecuted, it was not in the systematic way we see of torture and imprisonment, again more like heretics later.

* MissionFromGod: Germanius selling point to get Arthur to take on one last mission under the pretense that it is a mission sanctioned by God. Arthur isn't buying it.

* AscendedExtra: Dagonet. He was normally portrayed in the Arthurian mythos as a buffoon and a coward. He's quite obscure in the mythos itself with its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. Few nowadays outside of scholars would have heard of his name if not for the movie.
