Taught well by his mentor Merlin, King Arthur and his new queen, Guenevere, rule the kingdom of Camelot with refreshing and high ideals, bringing peace to a once troubled land.

When the dashing but arrogant Sir Lancelot joins the Knights of the Round Table, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues as the warrior and the queen fall madly in love.

King Arthur’s traitorous illegitimate son, Mordred, quickly catches wind of the scandalous affair and sets out to dishonor the king and destroy the kingdom.
