New Table

Tavola Nuovo

Italian literature distinguishes between the Tavola Vecchio (“Old Table”) and the Tavola Nuovo (“New Table”); that is, the Round Table fellowships commanded by Uther Pendragon and Arthur.

Uther’s Old Table seems to have been composed primarily of brawny, brash knights, while Arthur’s New Table was known for its justice, courtliness, and virtue.
