Arthurian Tales Chronology

Arthurian Tales Chronology The chronology that runs through Arthurian Tales has been developed to establish the best possible unity between the various sources. This can be done only to a certain extent. Upon the reviewing the available material, an impasse presents itself rather quickly. The dates that have been provided by Bede and Nennius regarding the coming of the Saxons and Ambrosius Aurelianus contradict each other. Mintz utilizes the dates Nennius complied. It should be noted that only some of the dates from Bede need to be abandon to reconcile it with other sources. The writings of Bede provided essential details for the non-British elements. The theories of noteworthy scholars further temper the timeline of Arthurian Tales. Geoffrey Ashe's view that 'King Riotimus is King Arthur' forms a keystone in this four-book series. Mintz incorporates Professor Ian Wood's points on the episcopate of Bishop Germanus to give more precision to the events in the saint's life. Mintz further refines this chronology with his view on 'The British Appeal to Agitius'. Many may disagree with his interpretation, but due to the appeal's inherent time variance, an alternative explanation does not seem unrealistic.
