King Arthur was the son of King Uther Pendragon and the Duke of Tintagel's wife Igraine. The sorcerer Merlin arranged the deceit that allowed the joining of the two, and asked that the product of that union, Arthur, be turned over to him for nurturing and learning. Arthur went on to become King of Britain and, with the help and support of his advisor Merlin, he held court at Camelot as the leader of the Knights of the Round Table. The knights rode out to accomplish great deeds and to seek adventure, their most notable mission, the quest of the Holy Grail- in Christian legend the holy cup used by Christ at the Last Supper. Betrayed by his wife Guinevere and his son or nephew Mordred, he was mortally wounded in battle against Mordred and carried away to Avalon, the land of immortal heroes.
