Trivia: What piece of literature canonized Arthurian legend?
The Once and Future Queen
History of the Kings of Britain
The Lord of the Rings
The correct answer is History of the Kings of Britain
So why is this answer correct? : “History of the Kings of Britain,” written by Geoffrey of Monmouth, is the first recorded life history of King Arthur. Before this point, legends of King Arthur were pieced together from poetry and the writings of previous scholars and historians; however, Geoffrey claimed to base his work on a now-lost Celtic manuscript that only he was allowed to see, allowing him to add possibly the first descriptions of Excalibur, Sir Lancelot, and Guinevere to the tale.
