King Arthur is a legendary British leader who, according to medieval histories and romances, led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the late 5th and early 6th centuries AD. The details of Arthur's story are mainly composed of folklore and literary invention, and his historical existence is debated and disputed by modern historians. The sparse historical background of Arthur is gleaned from various sources, including the Annales Cambriae, the Historia Brittonum, and the writings of Gildas. Arthur's name also occurs in early poetic sources such as Y Gododdin. More: en.wikipedia.org.

I believe he existed, not as the divine king the legends said he was, but possibly a roman citizen or soldier who seized the opportunity to become a king over his own land, after bending down to the glory of old Rome. The Romans left England in 410, which gave barbarian Saxons from the east. Maybe he wanted to protect what the Romans had already left? Possibly became a ruler after a most glorious act of bravery? After the Western Roman Empire fell in 476, there was no one left to control the barbarian hordes from the north, who wanted new and fertile land. So Arthur might have rallied armies to fight the barbarians and possibly rule more than before.

They have some evidence of King Arthur's existence but they are still not sure if he was the king we previously thought he was. But I think so, and I will continue to do so until I have been proven wrong.
