Geoffrey of Monmouth was a Norman who was basically rewriting British history and trying to create a unity between the Britons, Saxons and the Normans. The irony is that the Saxons that Arthur beat were the English. Kind of surprising that the English embraced Arthur as their hero.
Most of the Arthur myth was written by the French and such things as Camelot and Lancelot were added then.
I always wondered about the relevence of the FRENCH CASTLE IN THE HOLY GRAIL. Thank you Tony, now I know!

It's from a show called Whose Line, never heard of it, but these two guys playing Buffy TVS and Dracula are too funny
I was looking if there was a particular scene of the Buffy&Dracula episode (there is not) and found this. Now I think I'll look for other videos of Whose Line
