Camelot is the name of the stronghold of the legendary King Arthur, from which he fought many of the battles that made up his life. Its specific location is currently unknown and may be a fictionalized Romano-British province of post-Roman Britain. It is described as many days' journey from Avalon. Various stories present Camelot's court in varying ways, anything from welcoming followers of both the Celtic and the Christian gods, to exclusively one or the other. Since the location of Camelot is still a mystery, the truth about it—if there is one—is still unknown.
Possible Locations of Camelot:
Though the name "Camelot" may be derived from Camulodunum (modern Colchester), the stronghold of the Catuvellauni kings, and later the provincial capital of Roman Britannia, its Essex location (in East Anglia) places it in the wrong Anglo-Saxon kingdom.
The Camulod Chronicles by Jack Whyte is a series of historical fiction based on real facts of Roman Britain and Medieval Britain wrapped around the Arthurian legends.
In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Camelot is called a "silly place" by King Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table decide not to go there.
The musical, Camelot, by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, is loosely based on the legend.
John F. Kennedy's Administration
"Camelot" is a term used to describe the administration of United States President John F. Kennedy, based on the musical Camelot. The Burton/Andrews production opened in December 1960, a few weeks after Kennedy's election, and was a favorite of both the President and his wife Jackie. Jackie gave an interview to Life magazine journalist Theodore White shortly after the President's death in which she used some favorite lines from the musical, and that theme was often repeated in the press. "The lines he loved to hear were: Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot." And to Jackie, it would never be that way again.
The article, "For President Kennedy: An Epilogue", appeared in the December 6, 1963 issue of Life.
