Geoffrey of Monmouth claims his court was based in London. de Troyes says Cardigan. And nowadays we all say Camelot.. wherever that is. This doesn't have to be an inconsistency: like most medieval kings, Arthur didn't have a single fixed capital and throughout his rein would wander from one end of the kingdom to the other, making his abode wherever necessary.

** Already hinted at as early as ''Battlefield'', where [=McCoy's=] Doctors claims ''not'' to be Merlin... so far.

*** Morgan le Fay was probably another victim of a conspiracy or curse. She used to be a healer, then progressed to something darker. The curse was finally lifted (or she finally was able to fight back) when she took her brother to Avalon.

[[WMG: Arthur is a less than chivalrous rapist]]
* Morgause seems to have had her name slandered by Arthur, Merlin, or whoever happens to tell the story. Morgause was raped by Arthur (or rather tricked by Arthur into believing she was sleeping with her husband when it was actually Arthur) and Mordred was conceived, a representation of the twisted act. Neither Morgause nor Arthur knew they were related. When the act was found out, Arthur claimed to be seduced by Morgause instead of being an adulterer/rapist. Since it wouldíve been the words of Arthur, a king, against a woman, Arthurís story was accepted as fact.

** Or England got his hands on Walesís diary, made some edits, only for France to get his hands on it. France would obviously make the French knights (Lancelot) more perfect. Englandís edits were just to make himself, Arthur, look better.



** Merlin took away Kayís powers one day. Since he prophesised the arrival of Lancelot, Kay couldnít be a strong perfect knight anymore (thatís Lancelotís job). So Merlin cursed or somehow removed Kayís powers. Since Kay relied on his powers in battle, this explains why he lost his fighting ability.

[[WMG: Merlinís mentally unstable]]
* Merlin, once known as Myrddin Wilt (Merlin the Wild), was a bit crazy, according to Geoffrey of Monmouthís Vita Merlini. Heís a prophet, and he lives in the wilderness and starts talking to animals. A wild hairy man living in the woods talking to the animals and receiving prophecies from them doesnít seem to sane, does it?

[[WMG: Thereís a conspiracy against Sir Kay]]
* He was once an almost perfect knight, having great fighting skills and magic powers. Somehow he became horrible at fighting and lost his magic powers. Lancelot, Perceval, or a later knight were behind this, in order to become better known and respected than Kay.

[[WMG: Camelot is in Cornwall]]
* One of the earliest stories, Culhwch and Olwen, gives the location of Arthurís court as Celliwig, Cornwall.

[[WMG: Arthur wonít save all of Britain]]
* Arthur wonít save all of Britain when he returns. Heíll just save Wales. What have the English ever done for him? Arthur was originally a Welshman.
** Or Arthur could choose to save the ďCeltic nationsĒ: Wales, Cornwall, Scotland, Brittany, etc.

* 1953 Knights of the Round Table movie is Lancelot's story, in which he claims he killed Mordred and threw Excalibur into the water, and that he never had sex with Guinevere. Later, he started telling a different story (First Knight), so he could claim the throne for himself.

* The 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. (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 represents all the bad traits of the various Ladies of the Lake, and her sister all the good ones. He also claims, like the others, that he was the one who threw Excalibur into the lake.

WorldWarII seems to be the most likely time, and Churchill the most likely candidate for Arthurship.
