      The Arthur legend and Norman propaganda.
      Source: Williams & Lewis 1974:195.
      "This name {Arthur} seems first to have been raised to
      royalty about 1075 (as far as our records go, in a Legenda
      Sancti Goeznovii, or rather in the historical prelude to the
      life of the saint. There the pride of the Saxons ('pagans and
      devilish men' - soon after the Norman Conquest) is crushed
      'per magnum Arturum Britonum regem', a precursor, as it were,
      of the Conqueror."
