    Probably because he was a Saracen he is represented as not quite a gentleman, but pathetically anxious to become one. In the days when the Arthurian The Romance of Arthur book were coming into existence, violence, cruelty, and luxury were rampant, and the story bears many traces of them; but the greatness of these evils called forth some great virtues to counter them, and the story bears traces of these also and strives gallantly to be true to its ideals, though when primitive notions, more especially the old belief in magic, crop up in it, it sometimes stumbles.

Arthur retreats back to the tower, and Merlin admonishes the kings that they were wrong to be angry, since they will never prevail even though there are many of them. Prose romances of the 13th century explored these major themes further.
