Excalibur is the legendary sword of King Arthur. Excalibur is often confused with The Sword in the Stone. It is the sword given to the reigning king by the Lady of the Lake. After King Arthur’s fatal wounding at the Battle of Camlann, the sword was given to Sir Girflet. Sir Girflet was ordered by King Arthur to throw the sword back into the Enchanted Lake to return it to the Lady of the Lake. After two failed attempts to throw the great sword in the lake, Sir Girflet finaly threw it into the lake. As closed to the water a womans hand reached out and caught the sword and lowered the blade back into the lake.
