|History of the Kings of Britain|
Around 1136 he wrote Historia Regum Britanniae in Latin, translated as History of the Kings of Britain. It is a mythical history which included the first account of King Arthur, Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table.
As early as 1190, William of Newburgh wrote "it is quite clear that everything this man wrote about Arthur and his successors, or indeed about his predecessors from Vortigern onwards, was made up, partly by himself and partly by others".
