Civil War II - Arthur Strikes Back
"But a revolt is simmering north of the border in Scotland, according to author Alistair Moffat, whose book 'Arthur the Lost Kingdoms' argues he was a Scot.
'The Cornish got seriously upset with me,' he said. 'A lot of the Cornish tourist industry depends on this.'"
It gets worse
Twelfth century poetry from the "Black Book of Carmarthen" describes Arthur as a Welsh warlord, says Steve Blake, director of the Center for Arthurian Studies in North Wales.
References to the castle in Tintagel merely stem from confusion with the Welsh word Dindagol, meaning city on the headland, he says.
But it's all okay in the end
Folk historian Juliette Wood says that when different regions lay claim to a legendary figure, it can often be taken as proof that the figure was more myth than actual history.
"This localization of Arthur is the dead giveaway," she said. "In common with most academics, I don't think he was ever real."
