King Arthur's Children: A Study In Fiction And Tradition
Did you know King Arthur had many other children besides Mordred?
Depending on which version of the legend you read, he had both sons and
daughters, some of whom even survived him. From the ancient tale of Gwydre,
the son who was gored to death by a boar, to Scottish traditions of Mordred
as a beloved king, Tyler R. Tichelaar has studied all the references to
King Arthur's children to show how they shed light upon a legend that has
intrigued us for fifteen centuries.
King Arthur's Children: A Study in Fiction and Tradition is the first full-length
analysis of every known treatment of King Arthur's children, from Welsh
legends and French romances, to Scottish genealogies and modern novels by
such authors as Parke Godwin, Stephen Lawhead, Debra Kemp, and Elizabeth
King Arthur's Children explores an often overlooked theme in Arthurian
literature and reveals King Arthur's bloodline may still exist today.

for society and the need of people all over the world to be able to connect to
and believe in King Arthur and Camelot."
