King Arthur - Who Was He?

What does King Arthur have to do with the Anglo-Saxons?

Was King Arthur and the Kingdom Camelot a historical real or made up mythological madness? We may never know for certain.

One theory though, if there was a King Arthur, then he was a Roman/British leader who would have been defending his land against the invading Saxons.

In the 9th Century manuscript, the Historia Brittonum, it is written that Arthur single handily killed 960 people in one battle. We know this to be false, by the time he chopped through the first ten warriors his sword would have been so blunt he might as well have been hitting the rest with a rolling pin.
