The Round Table is King Arthur's famed table in the Arthurian legend, around which he and his knights congregate. As its name suggests, it has no head, implying that everyone who sits there has equal status. The table was first described in 1155 by Wace, who relied on previous depictions of Arthur's fabulous retinue. Different stories present different numbers of the knights, ranging from only 12 to as many as 150 or more.

Thanks ... it has been interesting doing all the research behind some of this series I have been working on. Trying to find out the correct coat of arms was a challenge let alone who the main knights were that sat at the table. Emote king - :emoteking: Scotland coat of arms icon
