King Arthur was the founder of Camelot and the creator of the Round Table, of which Lancelot and Galahad were members and Knights. He is also the original owner of Excalibur and the Crown of King Arthur.

As depicted in the Crown of King Arthur painting, it seems Arthur was a Roman, with access to that nation's resources and knowledge, and that the knights at his command were similarly equipped, helping to explain their dominance over the more 'primitive' British tribes of the time.
