Henry the Magical, Mythical Dragon
Of those who went forth only three succeeded in their quest to find the grail: the saintly knight Sir Galahad, the simple Sir Percival, and the honest, plain-spoken Sir Bors.

But Lancelot hesitates for a moment, and when Guinevere learns of this this later on she spurns him as not worthy of her affections. With the king reluctantly forced to attack Lancelot, the way was left open for Mordred to attack Camelot.
ABOUT THE MAGAZINE
War broke out after Lancelot staged an armed rescue of Guinevere, condemned to death for her treasonous love for the great knight. With the hasty return of the true king to Britain, a final battle took place at Camlann.
Arthur killed Mordred, but suffered a wound that seemed likely to kill him — though in the end he was taken to Avalon to be healed. A mysterious hand rises from the water and seizes the sword, drawing it under. Nevertheless, some bones were indeed interred in a black marble tomb in at the expense of Edward I.
To this day, countless new books, films, television shows and plays continue to be created about King Arthur, adding to the popularity of the legends, which remain among the most familiar and best-loved stories of all time. John Matthews is a historian who has produced more than books on myth, the Arthurian legends, and the history of the Grail.
