I'm inclined to belive the scenario painted by Jack Whyte in the "Camulod Chronicals". That of a Romano-British king.

I thought he was Scottish. I'm a MacArthur so I guess you can see why I'd think that. Welsh, really?


--------------------
Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.

" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Geddes MacGregor

Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone

"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
William Shakespeare quotes

"Onen hag Oll", One and All (Cornwall's motto)

Aye the most viable account for King Arthur is that he was a 5th Century CE Welsh King. Though as a Scot I would love for it to be proven tha he was Scottish. However Scotland has William Wallace and Rob Roy McGregor so I guess we can let the Welsh have a Hero too. Besides had it nae been for Myrddin King Arthur would nae have been even a footnote in History. beer_mug.gif

Druid of Ark;

There is more than enough credible evidence to show that Arthur was a Welsh speaking Briton who lived in the south west corner of Scotland. These people were eventually pushed south into what is now Wales and Cornwall. It is believed that Arthur was King in the late 6th century. On Arthurs shield there are depicted three crowns That of Dalriada, Strathclyde and Goddodin. Look up the Clan Arthur web site and scroll down to "The Scottish History of King Arthur and Clann Arthur".

I am not to familiar with the Gaelic tongue but if what you wrote means what I think it does then let say that resorting to crudity merely shows the extent of ones intelligence or lack of.

I owe you my most profound apologies for my curt posting. The individual who told me what it meant is now hanging by his toes from the rafters over a slow peat fire.

Apology accepted. But in the future I suggest that you remember the auld adage, "Tis better to remain silent and be thought a fool than tae open yer mouth and remove all doubt." I was a bit stunned that you would think me being crude, as I hae never been crude on the posts it is not in my nature. But Beannacht ort (Blessed be). beer_mug.gif

Yeah, Arthur was definitely Welsh. I remember because I used to be Tim the Enchanter.

Tim?



--------------------
I am a stag: of seven tines,
I am a flood: across a plain,
I am a wind: on a deep lake,
I am a tear: the Sun lets fall,
I am a hawk: above the cliff,
I am a thorn: beneath the nail,
I am a wonder: among flowers,
I am a wizard: who but I
Sets the cool head aflame with smoke?

I am a spear: that roars for blood,
I am a salmon: in a pool,
I am a lure: from paradise,
I am a hill: where poets walk,
I am a boar: ruthless and red,
I am a breaker: threatening doom,
I am a tide: that drags to death,
I am an infant: who but I
Peeps from the unhewn dolmen, arch?

I am the womb: of every holt,
I am the blaze: on every hill,
I am the queen: of every hive,
I am the shield: for every head,
I am the tomb: of every hope.

Well that explains why I see so much of Authurian stuff on Cornwall websites. Any thoughts on where he rose to power? I seem to sense a bit of a rivalry sometimes over Cornish and Welsh websites over Arthur.

Robert Phoenix;
Being a MacArthur I will naturally support the claim the Arthur was Scots and that the Clann MacArthur are descendants. There are many stories and theories of Arthur, most based on Legend. There is a book by David F. Carroll, "Arturius, A Quest for Camelot", that throws some historical facts into the equation. You might find it interesting and informative.
