King Arthur is most definitely a massive sub-genre.

For movies, thanks for leaving out John Boorman’s Excalibur
because it really sucked. Though if Lancelot making love
to Guinevere while fully suited in his armor doesn’t qualify
as weird, I don’t know what does. See the first sentence.

King Arthur starring Clive Owen - who was a Roman Knight -
and Keira Knightley as Guinevere who kicks some serious
butt throughout the film. And the Picts are our friends.

And Wikipedia doesn’t list my favorite telling of Arthur:
The Pendragon by Catherine Christian
