Sir Thomas Malory is the name and title accorded to the best-known English biographer of King Arthur, but of the man himself few facts are certain.

In a colophon to le Morte d'Arthur he describes himself as a knight and a prisoner, and a possible link has been found to a knight of Newbold Revell, in Warwickshire, who was knighted in 1422, and entered parliament in 1445. In 1450 he was accused of murder, robbery, violence and rape (although the charges may have been politically motivated).

Certainly by the time the book was published (by William Caxton) in 1485, Malory was dead.
