    Another pair of round table kniggits.
    Percival de Galis

    , semy of plain crosslets or.

    Sir Bedivere
    Or, a gonfanon of three points gules.

    Percival on the left, Bedivere on the Right.
    Ok..shiny kniggits in full plate armour to represent the characters from the Arthurian legend?

    I know, I know, the Story is supposed to be set in post Roman Britian but TBH, I don´t like the "we missed the last Galley" Version. It may be historically accurate for a handfull of them (the lesser known ones that is) to go running about defending wall forts alongside Kiera Knightley covered in blue marker pen but the round table would have been very small, more an occasional table than much else.

    Most of the main characters appear from the 10th Cent onwards, Gawain, Percival, Tristan, Galahad, Bedivere, Bors, Percival etc and I doubt they would have been sporting Toys R us style Roman kit as worn by Clive Owen in the 2004 film King Arthur.

    Even his arch enemy Mordred didn´t appear until some 200 years after Arthur was supposed to have been waving his Scimitar About. . He would have been Pretty short staffed, most importantly missing his main knight, Lancelot, who didn´t appear until 1170..

    Arthurian = Knights in Shining armour!!

    *The original says Purpur rather than Azure but the it looked a bit odd so I went with blue with a dab of red rather than full Purple.
