Malory's Morte Darthur , which transformed the sprawling thirteenth-century French Vulgate Cycle romances for fifteenth-century English readers, is often seen as the culmination of the medieval Arthurian tradition and a consolidation of Arthur's reputation as a perfect chivalric ruler. Examining Malory's political language, this study challenges the accepted view of Arthur's kingship and the role of the Round Table fellowship. Considering a range of historical and political sources, Ruth Lexton suggests that Malory used a specific lexicon to engage with contemporary problems of kingship and demonstrates that the Morte interrogates the collapse of the English monarchy during the Wars of the Roses.
