He grows to manhood and with his wife Guenevere and first knight Lancelot unites the country and founds the Knights of the Round Table. But the love between Lancelot and Guenevere, and the treachery of his sister Morgana and son Mordred cause King Arthur’s pride to jeopardize the kingdom. An epic battle between the knights of good and evil decides the fate of Camelot. Once again, the release will contain all bonus materials form the DVD version.
