Briton King. Reigning in the mideval times, he was considered to be part of the inspiration of the legend of "King Arthur" as first put down by Sir Thomas Mallory's work "Le Morte d'Artur". The tomb was discovered by monks in 1191 during the reign of Henry II. The bones were moved into a tomb where they stayed until 1278, when they were placed in a more elaborate tomb near the altar of the church in the presence of Edward I and Queen Eleanor. The bones and the famous lead cross disappeared in 1539, when Henry VIII dissolved all of the monasteries in the country. That he existed is proven by references to him and his battles not only by the Welsh, but by the Saxons as well. That he was a true king is in doubt; he was referred to by a comtemporay as the "Dux Bellorum," "Duke of Battles."
