If you are interested in learning more about King Arthur, I would recommend the book or audiobook “The Once and Future King
” by T. H. White
. It talks about Arthur’s childhood up until he is king. To read an original book of Arthurian legends, check out the “Mabinogion
“. It is another early reference to the king, in which the stories were written down in the 13th century.
If you are interested in learning about King Arthur through media, I would recommend the show “The Adventures of Merlin
“. The show is about Merlin (Colin Morgan) who is a wizard and servant to Arthur (Bradley James). It is a great show that combines humour, magic, and adventure. For a kid friendly King Arthur movie, there is Disney’s “The Sword in the Stone
“. This was my first introduction to the world of King Arthur when I was younger.
King Arthur was an amazing person who is only known about in legend. He was the type of person that we need more of in this world. I hope you enjoyed my tour!
