    With the great sword Caliburn in his hand and Merlin the enchanter at his side, Arthur comes out of hiding to claim the crown he was born to wear.

He is showing signs of age and he gradually realises he is losing his powers of prophecy and clairvoyance to a younger generation.

    At the end of the 13th century, Scotland was a blood-torn country suffering under the harsh domination of a tyrant usurper, the hated Plantagenet, Edward Longshanks.
