As well the actions of King Arthur don’t correspond with the typical actions of a king at the time. Also the events described in the tales of King Arthur are not linked to any real historical events. King Arthur’s legend was magnificent in a way that represents the spirit of kingship at the time, but sadly, it may have been nothing but a bedtime story. According to historical records, there was no one named King Arthur in the 5th and the early 6th centuries. If we look at the timeline of Middle Age Kings, the name King Arthur does not appear in the documentation.
