Camelot was the famous castle in the medieval legends of King Arthur, and where he reigned over Briton before the Saxon conquest. At Camelot Arthur established a brilliant court and seated the greatest and most chivalrous warriors in Europe, the Knights of the Round Table. Camelot was the starting point of the Quest for the Holy Grail, and by the 1200’s, it came to symbolize the center of the Arthurian world.
