Well number one is complete nonsense.

"There is however one element that all of the legends agree upon; that King Arthur had a big round table."

The early Arthurian legends made no mention of a round table. The round table did not enter the legend until some 600 years after the time when Arthur was supposed to have lived.

Of course we've all heard of Norse parliaments which met in a circle in the open air. 12th century English sensibilities however didn't like this idea and it could be that the round table was simply a way of modernising earlier versions of the legend.

Either way: FAIL
