The stories of King Arthur were essentially the comic books of their time -- full of breasts, violence and intricately baffling melodrama. These are four of the craziest:
4King Uther Rapes/Murders Arthur into Existence
Uther, the King of England, had a raging dent in his codpiece for Igraine, the queen of Cornwall. The thing was, Igraine was married to the duke of Tintagel, and Cornwall and England were in a war that seemed to start back up whenever someone remembered it.
Believing that anything that couldn't be solved with murder simply wasn't worth doing, Uther immediately resumed war on Cornwall and had Merlin disguise him as the duke, presumably with magic and not wholesale costume supplies.
Uther, sans duke suit.
