King Arthur ruled what is today Britain during the Early Middle Ages, often referred to as the Dark Ages, for the lack of solid, contemporary records and data. The Dark witch Morgan le Fay was Arthur's half-sister, and her enemy, the wizard Merlin, was a key member of his Court.
Arthur is assumed to have been a Muggle. There is no knowledge that he ever performed any type of magic or had any drop of magical blood in his veins. King Arthur was also well known for pulling a sword out of a stone which if taken would make the person king of Britain.
