In many ways, Arthurian Legend is built of fanfiction, incorporating sources and adding new elements along the way. From 6th century Welsh poetry through stories of saints, mythological histories, courtly romances, religious prose cycles, fifteenth-century harmonization, Victorian epics, early 20th century anachronisms, historical fiction (some based on historical research, other not-so-much), feminist reclamation, gender issues, and semi-random inspiration.
