King Arthur Was Not English

The anglophone world is all too willing to assume that the legend of King Arthur originated in England, and is thus English. King Arthur’s legend in reality likely originated outside of the British Isles. 941 more words

I'm a sucker for all things Arthurian, and Chretien de Troyes, so I thought this post would be a good way to introduce any of my readers who aren't already familiar it to C.J. Adrien's blog about Vikings and medieval history. It's one of my favorites on Wordpress. Check out the original, linked below, and take a look around while you're there. There's a lot of great stuff at Viking History with C.J. Adrien!

TRIVIA TRAIL # 14: ARTHURIAN ENGLAND

Question: Did England ever really have a King Arthur?
Answer: No, or, if it did, there’s no proof. Some scholars think there might have been a Roman-British military leader of that name who went up against the invading Saxons in the fifth century, and others think Arthur was just another name for King Alfred, the ninth-century king who united several of England’s small kingdoms into one in order to fight off the Danes, but neither of these would have had a fancy castle or a Court filled with beautiful ladies-in-waiting and knights in shining armour, which did not show up in fact or fiction until the Middle Ages. 64 more words

King Arthur

Is King Arthur the Antichrist?

I first heard about the book, The Revelation of King Arthur: Deceit, Intrigue, and the Guard’s Account, after its author, Robert Bruce Fruehling, posted a comment on my blog and told me he believed the story of King Arthur’s return would be used to bring about the coming of the Antichrist. 1,023 more words

Arthurian Books

I am fascinated with my research that is connecting the book of Revelation and the strange attempt by the blue bloods to connect their genealogies to the Arthurian legend and also connect him with king David and the British Israelism movement. I think that those who believe in the divine right to rule will try to assert this right in the New World Order Satanic dictatorship. If you look at the round table groups that have been working from the Cecil Rhodes movement, you will see this occult connection to the Arthurian legends. This article touches on a book that attempts to propel the Tares into power under the guise of Arthur as the antichrist character. This is very important to know this information as we approach a critical period in history when these Satanic conspirators will take over global rule under their Fourth Reich Fuehrer Arthur.
