Nazism, Arthurian myths, C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien
#5
Not to mention, the Arthurian legends as we have them and visualize them were collected and transmitted to us over a century after the Norman conquest, some 8 centuries after whatever historical persons and events inspired the tales, by descendants of French immigrants to England in the "high Middle Ages," in terms familiar to them. A Romanized Celtic chieftain and his followers in the AD 400's therefore morphed into fictional royalty and knights with customs, arms, and architecture of the period just before the War of the Roses.

Then, Monty Python got hold of them... Wink
