    It was not too ostentatious, but was made of wood with different inlays---like in pool cues.

    There is no consensus for the number of knights who joined Arthur at his Round Table. Malory's version gives twenty-six, representing the twenty-six-day rotation rate of the Sun's equatorial magnetic field.

    In other versions there are nine knights, the highest number that can be reached before becoming one with God.

    I found the Holy Grail. The Devil.

    Well, assuming that Arthur was 1 real person, and not just a name given to pretty much any viking warrior during that time, and that he actually had an actual table that he and the Knights sat around, and given the technological development and fashions affecting furniture making at that time, I would surmise that it was round, of unplained timber but likely polished in some way, treated with a wax finish and held together with wooden pins. Probably quite large and knights must have been pretty big guys to lug all that armour around though one assumes they didn't necessarily wear it to the table.

    There is actually no proof that the round table is nothing more than a legend.

    But if it were real it would have been made of wood and large enough to sit many, many knights around it. Some may feel that is was just a plain round wood table while others

    may feel it was richly decorated (coats of arms etc).

    Well.. I'd guess that it was made of wood and that it had a flat topside and something like either legs or a pedestal to support it's raised surface. In other words, it probably resembled a "table"... and gee whiz, it might have been somewhat rounded, too.

    And now, let me ask one of you... Who's buried in Grant's tomb?

    (Gosh, what a stupid question.)

    Itwas believed tobe round so there would be equlity between those seated. No head or foot seat to indicate superiority.

    It was round! Seriously, it was huge to allow all the knights to be seated. It was divided into segments, one for each knight.

    King Arthur is now concept to have been a real guy or woman, a Celtic ruler in Britain with reference to the time of the final Romans in Britain, say for the period of the guideline of Claudius as emperor. interior the memories as preserved, in spite of the shown fact that, he replaced into shown as a medieval king of a disunited Britain who replaced into attempting to deliver the country jointly. the objective of the table being around replaced into that in the time of those days rank replaced into shown via whoever sat closest to the king and the foot of the table replaced into lowest in rank. via making the table around, this technique replaced into thwarted, making all equivalent in rank, all equidistant from one yet another. Merlin replaced into the sorcerer interior the medieval memories, yet he replaced into the non secular adviser interior the unique memories, that have been pre-Christian (so he might have been an historical priest of the Druidic type, or a shaman). the diverse Arthurian memories have exciting parallels interior the lore of a few human beings of the Caucasus mountains, the Ossetes, as shown in an editorial interior the "magazine of yank Folklore" (i think of this replaced into interior the Seventies yet you will might desire to be sure this on line). the author proposes that some warriors from the Caucausus have been published to Britain via the Romans and that they provided the source of those legends. This replaced into the inspiration of the present action picture wherein the infantrymen are Sarmatians. in spite of the shown fact that, it particularly is a lot greater possibly that those aspects are lots older and are available from the Proto-Indo-eu subculture which gave upward thrust to the Celts, the Sarmatians, and to a super many different cultures between those 2 to boot, all of which you would be able to look up on Google. the diverse popular characters in Arthurian legend contain Bedevere, Guinevere (Arthur's queen), Sir Lancelot (who enjoyed Guinevere), and the virtuous Parsival who even had an opera written approximately him. Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote an early version of the Arthurian memories in his history, stated as "The history of the Kings of england." between the main popular variations is the greater present day "The as quickly as and destiny King" via T.H. White. It has this call with the aid of fact at his dying Arthur replaced into concept to have been carried off to the Blessed Isles interior the west the place he replaced into merely waiting for Britain to choose him, whilst he might return, Christ-like, to rescue his native land returned.
