The Gawain outline is on the website. It can be found at http://Gawain.CircleOfLogres.com/
As with all previous outlines, it will be updated from time to time prior to the publication of that particular book.

The next outline will be Guinevere's. Will work on that tomorrow. Let me know what you think of all of the outlines so far, especially Gawain's. It is the largest to date (over 21 printed pages). 😎

Visit the main page (http://www.CircleOfLogres.com) or click on the other pages from Gawain's page.

Next outline is going to be Gawain's. Hopefully it will not take me as long as Merlin's did. 😎

The Grail section has now been updated. Next one will be Merlin. Visit http://www.CircleOfLogres.com/ to see other outlines. Let us know what you think.

Last page to be updated was Lancelot. Currently working on the Grail. Getting distracted by Knights of the Round Table. Current list is at 431 knights. Looking to have over 1000, if my calculations are correct. Feel free to visit http://www.CircleOfLogres.com/ and comment. Discuss any aspects that are of interest.

Logres (also Logris, Logereis, Lôgroys, Londres, Longres, Lugereis, Nogres, Locris, or Loegria — to list a few) is the name of Arthur’s realm in the Matter of Britain and in a large amount of other literature. It derives from the Mediæval Welsh word Lloegyr (Lloegr in modern Welsh), a name of uncertain origin referring to England (or ‘Angle-Land’, being a product of the Anglo-Saxon occupation of that part of Britain, after the Arthurian period); perhaps originally derived from the Anglo-Saxon legor, an element found in the place name of Leicester (Ligore-chester), Ligore being an early name of the river which runs through Leicester, now known as the Soar. The true derivation of this legor is indeed puzzling.

In Arthurian contexts, “Logres” is often used to describe the Brittonic territory roughly corresponding to the borders of the geographic area that we now call England before the region was taken over by the Angles and Saxons (with more than a few Jutes and Frisians involved as well). According to Geoffrey of Monmouth’s influential (pseudo)history Historia Regum Britanniae (History of Kings of Britain), the realm (of Locris) was named after the legendary King Locrinus (or Locrine or Logryn), the oldest son of Brutus of Troy. This is a false etymology, for the name Locris (or Logres) is actually a natural linguistic evolution of the Mediæval Welsh Lloegyr.

In his Historia, Geoffrey uses the word “Loegria” to describe a province containing most of England excluding Cornwall and possibly Northumberland, as in this example from section iv.20 (from the Penguin Classics translation by Lewis Thorpe):

Parishes were apportioned off, Deira being placed under the Metropolitan of York, along with Albany, for the great River Humber divides these two from Loegria. Loegria itself was placed under the Metropolitan of London, along with Cornwall. The Severn divides these last two provinces from Kambria or Wales, which last was placed under the City of Legions.

The name Logres was used throughout the Arthurian legends to refer not just to what is now modern-day England, but to the entire British realm of King Arthur. According to Lewis Spence, Logres was the eastern part of ancient Britain. Other sources, Chrétien de Troyes for one, seem to apply the name generally to Arthur’s entire kingdom. In Perceval, or Le Conte del Graal (Perceval, or The Story of the Grail), lines 6169-6170, Chrétien explains the name as signifying “the land of ogres”, which it allegedly was in pre-Arthurian times.

‘King Arthur of Logres’ is a fairly common designation in French and German legends, though the texts are often ambiguous as to whether Logres is a territory or a city. In the Vulgate romances, it is both, with the latter named as Arthur’s capital and identified today as London. The site of several Saxon battles at the beginning of Arthur’s reign, Logres (the city) was invested with its own bishop. According to the Post-Vulgate Mort Artu, King Mark of Cornwall invaded and destroyed the city of Logres after Arthur’s death. Brutus had originally built this city and named it ‘La Nueue Troie’ (The New Troy). It was later to be renamed Logres (Locris, Loegria) after Locrinus/Locrine/Logryn.

In German romance, Logres is often noted as Gawain’s kingdom, since Wolfram von Eschenbach tells us that Gawain married Duchess Orgeluse (Orguelleuse) of Logres; who, previously, had inherited it from her late husband, Duke Cidegast. Though Malory refers to Arthur’s realm as ‘England’, he gives the surname ‘de Logres’ to several knights. Additionally, Logres is the setting of Chrétien de Troyes’ Lancelot, or Le Chevalier de la Charrete (Lancelot, or The Knight of the Cart), and of Perceval, as well as of much of the Vulgate Cycle. Even though it is probably to be identified geographically as England, it is here primarily a poetic creation that is sometimes a vague locus of adventure and romance. The name “Logres” has been modernly used in many works of fantasy set in Britain, for example, C S Lewis’ That Hideous Strength and Susan Cooper’s Over Sea, Under Stone.

Logres is Arthur’s realm (whether represented as a kingdom, territory, or city); and it embodies a chivalric code of integrity, courage, might, honour, compassion, and justice. The usual Arthurian books are a mere shadow of this Circle of Logres sixteen-volume set. Even though most authours attempt to recover the reality behind the myths, legends, and folktales of King Arthur and his realm, they generally restrict themselves to only one explanation for each person, place, and thing. History is not that simplistic nor precise. All of the available evidence is considered and presented in the proper inclusive scheme for the historical and mythological evolution of “all things Arthuriana”.

The difficulty is differentiating between mythologised history and historicised myth (as well as re-historicised mythologised history). This book-set takes those people, places, and things from the myth, legend, and folklore of the whole of Arthuriana and determines (as completely as possible) their real and historical origins. It will be shown how every piece of Arthur’s realm is related through close genealogical and geographical kinship.

These books have been years in the making. The main goal is to present a high level of scholarship in the coverage of the following topics: Arthur, Gawain, Tristan/Isolde, The Lady of the Lake, The Holy Grail, Morgan le Fay/Mordred/Avalon, Excalibur, Guinevere, The Round Table/Knights, Camelot, Lancelot, Perceval/Galahad, and Merlin. These thirteen books not only explore each topic, but analyse how those subjects represent fundamental archetypes that are related through genealogy and geography.

In addition to those thirteen, there will be a volume covering the overall historical backdrop from multiple culturally based perspectives (“Circle of Logres: The History”), and another as a summary of conclusions for the entire project (“Circle of Logres: A Compendium of Conclusions”). Even though a compendium is the final book, a version of it is actually the first (as an introductory volume to the set). “Circle of Logres: An Introduction” outlines the project, and interests the reader in the depth and breadth of its research and influence. Once the other books are published, the introductory volume will be rewritten and expanded as “Circle of Logres: A Compendium of Conclusions”.

This Circle of Logres project is an expanded and re-evaluated view of a 1985 self-authoured paper entitled “King Arthur”. The goal here is threefold: to understand the Arthuriana of Romance; to recover its Historical People, Places, and Things; and to bring forth the Real Origins and Archetypes of the whole of Arthuriana via Genealogical and Geographical Methodologies. In this endeavour, the truth behind the Folklore, the Myth, the Legend, and the Romance shall be discovered.
