Black Cross

Black Cross (Monument)
The Black Cross

When Joseph and his followers arrived in BritainKamaalot (Camelot) was the richest city of the Pagans. The king, Agrestes, pretended to convert; after Joseph left the city, Agrestes martyred twelve of Josephe’s relatives.

A cross Joseph had erected was stained black with their blood. Agrestes went mad and committed suicide, after which his people called Joseph back. The Black Cross was still standing in the forest of Camelot in Arthur’s time, serving as a rallying point.

Is this perhaps identical with the Cross Galahad and Meliant came to?
