Aye, that'll be right. For research reveals Arthur was born in Dumbarton and buried in Govan...
...Clan historian, Hugh McArthur, 42, from Glasgow believes Arthur was in fact Artur MacAeden who fought Saxon invaders in the sixth century....Hugh McArthur wrote:He was related to St Columba and St Kentigern and was the son Aeden MacGabhrain, a sixth century King of Dalriada (Argyle and Ulster) whose mother was from the British Kingdom of Strathclyde.
Artur MacAeden became a King of the Britons. He had a fortressat Dumbarton and was buried in Govan.
Hugh believes the great King is buried at Govan Old Parish Church. Many people believe an ancient stone coffin holds the body of St Copnstantine, the founder of Govan and one of the first to introduce Christianity to Scotland.
But Hugh says it hold the remains of Arthur.
He is particularly intrigued by the Celtic warrior carving on the side of the coffin engraved with the letter A.
The Old Parish Church was used as a burial site for the Castle at Dumbarton , whose ancient name was Castello Arturius-Arthurs Castle.Hugh McArthur wrote:There are up to 200 Arthur place names in Scotland. These include 7 Arthurs Seats. And theres Arthurlie near Barrhead-Arthurs camp for warriors...
...And its not just Arthur- many of the characters in the stories can also be linked to Artur MacAeden and Scotland. Loch Lomond used to be known as The Lake. Guinevere's grave is at Meigle, Perthshire. Myrddin- or Merlin featured in the life of St Kentigern. Like the Arthur of legend, the Scottish Artur had a sister called Morgana.
But theres stil the problem of dates. The Arthur of legend died in 542, around the time Arthur MacAeden was born. Some Scots historians share Hugh's take on King Arthur, but many are less than convinced
What u fink? Would be nice if it were true
