How long has civilized man been on earth? As long as the earth has turned. People might argue that it is Mordred’s fault for going against King Arthur. If King Arthur had not had an affair with Morgause, Mordred should not have been born and caused problems for King Arthur. He knows Lancelot and Guinevere love each other but he ignores the situation. It is when Mordred comes in and tries to go against him because he knows Lancelot and Guinevere are the people King Arthur is trying to protect and he tries to threaten him with it. The fall of Camelot is King Arthur’s fault. (Camelot, 1960).
Most of this is Arthur’s fault because for one he does not listen to Merlin. Arthur knows that Guinevere would be his downfall but still marries her (Camelot, 1960). Also, he obviously knows of the love affair that would eventually happen but still lets Lancelot join the round table (Camelot, 1960). Since he is uneasy with his crown, he always runs away from the castle when there is trouble (Camelot, 1960). When Mordred asks him to stay in the forest for the night, he should have known he is up to something (Camelot, 1960). He does not care about how his wife’s action and decide to accept what is happening. It is Arthur fault for not doing anything when he had the chance.
Another reason why it is King Arthur’s fault is that he does not take care of his own son Mordred. Since he did not take care of him since he was little, he must feel betrayed, left out, and lonely. Is must be why he want revenge and try to take over king Arthur throne. He knows Mordred was hungry for the throne and want to take over but he did not try to stop him (Camelot, 1960). King Arthur was indecisive. He is not passionate about Guinevere and seem to be afraid of Lancelot. It is King Arthur who makes many unwise decisions that lead to further destruction of his court.
In addition, it is Arthur's fault for trusting Guinevere too much. He had even told her his crown
