The Knights of the Round Table were a legendary order of knights loyal to King Arthur and many of them became medieval heroes that embodied the aspects of life that people found most pleasing in the time period: such as military progress, honor and acts of chivelary.

Over time the legends became more and more romanticized with the inclusion of magic and mystery, to the point it is impossible to tell what is based on fact and what is down to imagination. The Round Table has also been interpreted by some as an early form of democracy, since there is no head at the table, meaning that all who sit at the table have equal status and voice.
