In The Once and Future King, the portrayal of the Middle Ages is conceived as that of
magnificent castles, beautiful clothing, great kings and queens- everything and everyone

and Future King are so backward that the story could be described as a fairy tale.

The time period can sprout love and beauty, given the right amount of spice, though. As
The Once and Future King did.
