About King Arthur, Geoffrey of Monmouth Text

Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Brittanniae, "history of the kings of Britain," contains one of the most comprehensive versions of the Arthurian legend; though it is no longer considered valuable as a history, it is still an extremely valuable piece of medieval literature. It is easily found in translation; an ebook can be found at https://books.google.com/books?id=FUoMAAAAIAAJ. For the Latin, an ebook is available at https://books.google.com/books?id=LBw2AAAAMAAJ.

King Arthur is a legendary British leader of the late 5th and early 6th centuries, who, according to medieval histories and romances, led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the early 6th century. _______________________
