Seit Jahrhunderten fasziniert die Arthus-Sage die Menschen immer wieder aufs neue, zuletzt erst wieder in der Version von Marion Zimmer Bradley: "Die Nebel von Avalon".

In Old French sources this then became Escalibor, Excalibor, and finally the familiar Excalibur. In Arthurian romance, a number of explanations are given for Arthur’s possession of Excalibur. In Robert de Boron’s Merlin, the first tale to mention the „sword in the stone“ motif, Arthur obtained the British throne by pulling a sword from an anvil sitting atop a stone that appeared in a churchyard on Christmas Eve. However, in what is called the Post-Vulgate Cycle, Excalibur was given to Arthur by the Lady of the Lake sometime after he began to reign. In Welsh legend, Arthur’s sword is known as Caledfwlch. In Culhwch and Olwen, it is one of Arthur’s most valuable possessions and is used by Arthur’s warrior Llenlleawg the Irishman to kill the Irish king Diwrnach while stealing his magical cauldron. From The Mabinogion, translated by Jeffrey Gantz.
16th-century Middle Cornish play Beunans Ke, Arthur’s sword is called Calesvol, which is etymologically an exact Middle Cornish cognate of the Welsh Caledfwlch. Geoffrey’s Historia is the first non-Welsh source to speak of the sword. Geoffrey says the sword was forged in Avalon and Latinises the name „Caledfwlch“ as Caliburnus. In several early French works, such as Chrétien de Troyes‘ Perceval, the Story of the Grail and the Vulgate Lancelot Proper section, Excalibur is used by Gawain, Arthur’s nephew and one of his best knights. This is in contrast to later versions, where Excalibur belongs solely to the king. In addition, when Excalibur was first drawn, in the first battle testing Arthur’s sovereignty, its blade blinded his enemies. Malory writes: „thenne he drewe his swerd Excalibur, but it was so breyght in his enemyes eyen that it gaf light lyke thirty torchys.
Excalibur’s scabbard was said to have powers of its own. Loss of blood from injuries, for example, would not kill the bearer. In some tellings, wounds received by one wearing the scabbard did not bleed at all. Excalibur is by no means the only weapon associated with Arthur, nor the only sword.
Welsh tradition also knew of a dagger named Carnwennan and a spear named Rhongomyniad that belonged to him. Culhwch and Olwen, where Arthur uses it to slice the witch Orddu in half. There are other similar weapons described in other mythologies. In particular, Claíomh Solais, which is an Irish term meaning „Sword of Light“, or „Shining Sword“, appears in a number of orally transmitted Irish folk-tales.
The story of the Sword in the Stone has an analogue in some versions of the story of Sigurd, whose father, Sigmund, draws the sword Gram out of the tree Barnstokkr where it is embedded by the Norse god Odin.
