The legend of King Arthur has always intrigued me, as I’m sure it has for most children and adults. The Legend of King Arthur includes everything from chivalry, castles, knighthood, Knights of the Round Table, Sir Lancelot, Sir Galahad, and Guinevere to name a few. And who can forget Excalibur?
But for King Arthur, it was about honor, and faith, I believe.
As for knighthood, most young lads probably wanted to achieve it, but it was no easy task. The young lads who wanted to progress to knighthood had to work hard to first become a page and a squire before he could train to become a knight.
One tradition of kings was to dip the tip of his sword into a delicious food substance and place it on his infant son’s tongue. As the lad grew, the food became the lad’s favorite and his desire would be to become a knight in his father’s court.
What do you think? Do you think King Arthur was fact or fiction?
