King Arthur - Fact or Fic­tion?

Is the story of King Arthur true? There is lots of ev­i­dence to say it could be based on a real per­son:

FACT

Leg­end says King Arthur’s par­ents were from Tin­tagel Cas­tle in Eng­land. Ex­ca­va­tions of the site have since re­vealed a slate en­graved with the name ‘Ar­tog­nou’ and other names from the story. Could ‘Ar­tog­nou’ be the real king Arthur?

FACT

In 1191 monks of Glas­ton­bury Abbey re­port­edly un­cov­ered a tomb con­tain­ing a cross that said “Here lies buried the fa­mous king Arthur with Guin­e­vere in the Isle of Avalon,” but where the cross is now, no­body knows.

FACT

Some place names from me­dieval Eng­land sound very sim­i­lar to the places in the Leg­end of King Arthur – such as Ca­mu­lo­dunum. Could Ca­mu­lo­dunum be the king­dom of Camelot where King Arthur ruled?
