      In "Arthur and King Lucius" Malory has transformed the alliterative Morte Arthure, one of the earliest full-scale tragedies in English, into a tale of the Round Table at its happiest and, in some ways, most noble. For the overweening pride of the Arthur in his source, Malory substitutes a just and wise king; and the poem's tragic conclusion. He reconstructs the story of this fascinating figure, who applied to the Pope for formal baptism in AD , making him the first Christian King in Britain, and traces the history of the story of Lucius, separating the myth from reality and attempting to restore this King to his rightful place in British history.
