"This is the Arthur about whom the trifles of the Bretons rave even now, one certainly not to be dreamed of in false myths, but proclaimed in truthful histories--indeed, who for a long time held up his tottering fatherland, and kindled the broken spirits of his countrymen to war.
"At last, at the siege of Mount Badon, trusting in the image of our Lord's Mother which he had sewn on his armor, rising alone against nine hundred of the enemy he dashed them to the ground with incredible slaughter."
