Portrayals of Excalibur as The Sword in the Stone. This is not the way the Arthurian Legend goes: the sword in the stone was actually Caliburn, wheras Excalibur (as you may recall from the retelling and subsequent criticism in Monty Python and the Holy Grail) was given to Arthur by the Lady of the Lake). This is either due to not doing the research after decades off Lost in Imitation or a desire to condense the most powerful sword and the most meaningful obtaining of it into one point in the story.
