There are many variations to the legend (4/8)

Many start similarly, with the prophecy of England’s king being chosen by a sword in the stone, and a young man named Arthur who would come forward to pull free the sword and prove the prophecy true. Through time however, the precise details of the story have become diluted and many additions and amendments have been made to subsequent versions. For example, while Arthur is said to have died at the tragic Battle of Camlann against his nephew Mordred in most earlier versions of the tale, later interpretations write that he survived and continued to rule England until much later.
