The History of the Kings of Britain: An edition and translation of the De gestis Britonum [Historia Regum Brittannie] (Arthurian Studies) (Volume 69)
This imaginative history of the Britons, written in the twelfth century, is the first work to recount the woes of Lear and the glittering career of Arthur. It rapidly became a bestseller in the British Isles and Francophone Europe, with over 200 manuscripts surviving.
