Synopsis

Historical fantasy. Robbed of his birthright by an evil uncle, Vortigern, Arthur grows up in a brothel in the back streets of Londinium and becomes a proficient fighter, before finding that he alone is able to pull the magical sword Excalibur from a stone. This immediately puts him in danger, marking him as the one man who can bring about Vortigern's downfall, and so Arthur and his band are hunted down and go into hiding, until Arthur realises he can lead the fight against Vortigern and become the rightful king of England.
