And soon after a small sailboat from the Isle of Avalon, with Morgan le Fay and three more priestesses of the Goddess, picked up the wounded Arthur and took him with them. That is why they say of King Arthur that he is the once and future king: Rex Quondam, Rexque Futurus. At Merlin’s suggestion, Arthur created a brotherhood of warriors and arranged them around a Round Table, as a symbol of the world and the sky above their heads. And so came the fateful day when the King, with the meager remnants of his brotherhood and army, and now without the help of Merlin, faced the awe-inspiring army of Mordred in the ill-fated Battle of Camlann. As for the return of King Arthur, the messianic element of the Arthurian mythos is not to be overlooked. Arthur killed Mordred, but the king was fatally wounded. This means: ‘Here lies buried the illustrious King Arthur, on the Isle of Avalon’. This Latin phrase was supposedly carved upon Arthur's tomb at Glastonbury, according to Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur 21:7: Of course, the Glastonbury Cross has a different inscription, usually given as: "HIC IACET SEPULTUS INCLITUS REX ARTURIUS IN INSULA AVALONIA": Here Lies the Tomb of the Famous King Arthur on the Isle of Avalon.

The story’s hero and his companions resolve this crisis to finally announce, with their disappearance, that in the future there will be a similar, or more serious crisis, which will be solved by the same archetypes. In it, no one had a privileged place, and the king, without ceasing to be the King, conversed with his warriors like any other knight. But many men say that there is written upon his tomb this verse: hic iacet arthurus, rex quondam rexque futurus. White’s title had been borrowed from the ancient mythic inscription said to mark the legendary king’s tomb, which read “Hic iacet Arthurus, rex quondam, rexque futurus”, or “Here lies Arthur, king once, and king to be.” And they say they are all in a state of lethargy, waiting for Arthur to arrive from Avalon and awaken them in preparation for the great ‘battle’ which would take place when the world faces great danger. It is not uncommon for an oppressed people--in this case, the Britons, soon to be Welsh--to have a type of messianic figure in King Arthur, the last great British king, who waits on Avalon and will return in the time of greatest peril.

Elijah is said to return; a son of Zoroaster will come; Baldr will be resurrected at Ragnarok; Charlemagne is under Chateau Montsegur2, Francis Drake and Drake's Drum; Holger Danske will rise from his repose (either below Kronborg Castle at Elsinore, or Nonnebakken at Odense) and fight to preserve Denmark in her hour of need1; and so on. In this way, he forced the invading hordes to retreat to the shores of the canal and to renounce further attempts at conquest. I mean, it failed to say anything about the Rex Quondam, Rexque Futurus. However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, short-term objectives with long-term goals. (1994).
