Historical Info:
During the Victorian era, while Great Britain’s all-powerful Royal Navy had free rein over the world’s oceans, an “Arthurian Revival” was permeating English culture — it was precisely in this period when the legend of Camelot as we know it today was shaped. Perhaps not surprisingly, at the turn of the 20th century, the armoured cruisers HMS Royal Arthur and HMS King Alfred plied the waves under the flag of St. George — the latter ship named after Alfred the Great of Wessex, the first king after the legendary Arthur to unite England, in the 9th century.
 
The third of this company of early medieval English kings was Edgar, the lead in a series of 9 first-class armoured cruisers which served in the Royal Navy from 1900 to 1921. The ship was named in honor of Edgar the Peaceful, king of England in the 10th century. However, the cruiser had 5 more predecessors of the same name since the 17th century. The Admiralty did not forget the name after the 1920s, but the 2 more Edgars that were built just happened to be quite unlucky: an aircraft carrier laid down in 1944 was renamed on the slipway, and an order for a cruiser was cancelled in 1946.
