Britain's hour of greatest need will come during a third world war fought between a revamped British Empire and the United States in the 2050s. Arthur will return and lead the British in an invasion of America. However, this will also count as America's hour of greatest need and CaptainAmerica will return to lead the United States. The unstoppable Excalibur will strike Cap's unbreakable shield, and existence will explode.

[[WMG: The Knights of the Round Table were rounding up pagan artifacts to destroy them or use them for their own ends]]
Specifically, the Four Treasures that the gods left to mankind in Irish myth. Just imagine:
* Excalibur is the Sword of Nuada
* The Siege Perilous is the Stone of Destiny (both announce people of worthy blood)
* The Lance of Longinus is the Spear of Lugh (they both made the wielder invincible)
* The Cauldron of Dagda is the Holy Grail (feeding someone forever and making them immortal could both be poetic ways of saying they bring vitality. And since the Grail is tied to the Fisher King somehow, it's possible that the land a man owns becomes full of life too- ergo, both effects could be the same)
The Knights regard them as inherently sinful and wanted to keep them out of human hands.

* Camelot the 2011 series is Kay's retelling. He portrays himself as intelligent, level-headed, competent, and loyal, and his father Ector as heroically avenging his dead wife. Because of his falling-out with Arthur towards the end, and Kay being a DeadpanSnarker, everyone else gets [[TakeThat unflattering portrayals]]: Arthur is a dumb lecher who stole Kay's girlfriend, Guinevere is an adulteress even before she meets Lancelot, Gawain couldn't even read and needed Kay to teach him, Merlin murdered two people to get Excalibur and lied to cover it up, Lot was a murderous warmonger, Morgan an incestuous manipulator, etcetera. However, as Kay didn't see all the story, he gets some details wrong, like Morgan's relationship with Igraine.

Added DiffLines:

* King Arthur the 2004 film is Guinevere's retelling. She portrays herself as a badass warrior princess as opposed to the helpless damsel in most other stories. She denies that she and Lancelot acted on their attraction (much like Lancelot's own account above), and furthers this by claiming that he died before she and Arthur were married. Morgan Le Fay, who is Guinevere's enemy in virtually every account, is [[UnPerson completely absent from this one.]] Guinevere also makes up an alternate background story for Arthur, because she was uncomfortable with the idea of him being a ChildByRape.

* 1998 Merlin TV-movie is Merlin's story. This Merlin is identical to Kevin the Merlin from Mists of Avalon, but he claims some of Taliesin's deeds as his own. Both Queen Mab and Lady of the Lake in his story take traits from various Ladies of the Lake, with Mab taking all the bad qualities, and her sister all the good ones. He also claims, like the others, that he was the one who threw Excalibur into the lake.

Both (Or Kevin and Taliesin are Morgan's portrayal of him, depending on whose account is more accurate.) Merlin portrays himself as the BigGood, while giving Morgan a negative portrayal as a BigBadWannabe with no magic. Queen Mab and Lady represents all the bad traits of the Lake in his story take traits from various Ladies of the Lake, with Mab taking all the bad qualities, and her sister all the good ones. He also claims, like the others, that he was the one who threw Excalibur into the lake.

* Then King Arthur: The Roleplaying Wargame has to be Arthurs own telling of his legend. There he gloriously conquers all of Britain, defeats (or subjugates) some magical fay folks, brings about the "Age of Wonders and Mayhem" and his Knights of the Round Table are little more than elite mooks doing his bidding.

* At least three revisions say this. ''{{The Mists of Avalon}}'' says that Morgause cursed Guinevere. At the end of ''Literature/{{Sword of the Rightful King}}'', the SweetPollyOliver Guinevere is cursed by Morgana le Fay herself -- her "line [will be] blighted, and her cause be slighted." On the other hand, in Susan Cooper's ''Literature/TheDarkIsRising'' series, Arthur and Guinevere ''do'' have a baby, but the kid is spirited off to hundreds of years in the future for his own safety. Finally, in Rosalind Miles' ''Literature/{{Guinevere}}'' series, she '''does''' have a child - a little boy named Amir. He dies at the age of seven in battle with the Saxons, cursed by Morgan.

This explains the various interpretations and conflicting facts, as well as the retellings. All of the retellings of the mythos, from TheMistsOfAvalon through the {{Series/Merlin}} television series are true, just in alternate universes.

As you know, [[FateStayNight Saber]] was once King Arthur. Two girls couldn't have a baby even if they tried.
