Arthurian, Grail, Merlin & Taliesin Book Titles | ARTORIUS: THE REAL KING ARTHUR

John has written Artorius: the Search for the Roman King Arthur with Linda Malcor,  following the search for the historical figure behind what is arguably the most famous cycle of legends over the centuries.  In this book they argue that the man whose story started the traditions of Arthur was a soldier name Lucius Artorius Castus who lived at the end of the second century A.D.  Artorius’ extraordinary career took him from one end of the Roman Empire to the other, bringing him into contact with tribespeople amongst the Steppe nomads – in particular the Sarmatians. For several decades the Sarmatians have been thought to be the inspiration behind Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table, among other British tales.  We focus on Castus’s career, not only commenting on the parallels with the Arthurian tradition but also providing details about the Roman Empire of the second century A.D. From this we will show that of all the various contenders, scattered across several centuries and much of the ancient world, this man is the only figure to bear the right to be called the Real King Arthur.
