Like Ken Burns, the production quality is better than the historicity.

As we wanted to see excalibur (and the title link posted by you reveals enough for a search, when we mouse over it) we had to google this lake's name and schoolgirl, and read about it on other newspapers. They say it is about 10 to 30 years old, probably a film prop, which is not unexpected, considering how many movies were done about the legend. I remember however that is was Merlin, in the movie, hehe, who returned the sword... See how they are lying to us?

Woman: Well how'd you become king then?

[Angelic music plays... ]

King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.

Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. ... If I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.
