King Arthur’s life

Read the text, select key information and classify it in this mindmap.

Legend says that, a long time ago, King Uther Pendragon and Lady Igraine had a son: Arthur. Both his parents died when he was young, so Merlin, Uther’s wizard counsellor, sent Arthur to live with a knight, Ector.
One day, Arthur found a gleaming sword stuck in a stone! A man told him that whoever could pull out this sword as the true king. Arthur succeeded and became King of England.

During his reign, he battled against his rivals with the help of his fantastic sword Excalibur. Throughout his extraordinary adventures, Arthur lived with his wife Guinevere, Merlin, Sir Lancelot and other knights in Camelot, the castle where the Round Table was.

One legend even says that Arthur never died and that he still lives in Avalon, ready to return when the British need him…
