Answer by Pharaoh
Le Morte d’Arthur – Sir Thomas Malory

Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur chronicles the rise and fall of King Arthur. As a young boy, pulling the sword Excalibur from the stone destines him to become the king of England. As king, Arthur establishes the Round Table, champions the tenets of chivalry, and searches for the Holy Grail. He rules wisely, but the love between his wife Guinevere and the knight Launcelot leads to Arthur’s death, and as Le Morte d’Arthur ends, the Round Table disbands.


“ Le Morte Darthur is undoubtedly the last definitive interpretation of the Arthurian myth before the dawn of the English Renaissance.”
