Listed companions of this famous table. [More]
Festive events involving jousting and dancing in imitation of Arthur and his knights. The first known Round Table took place in Cyprus in 1223, to celebrate a knighting, and such pageants remained popular throughout much of Europe during the remainder of the Middle Ages.
In many cases, the participating knights assumed the names and arms of Arthur's knights, and René d'Anjou even built an "Arthurian" castle for a Round Table he held in 1446.
