|This article is about the infantry hero. For other units named King, see King (disambiguation).|
King Arthur is an infantry hero available in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings. He is based on the legendary British leader of the same name who allegedly defended Britain from Saxon invaders from Germany in the late 5th and early 6th centuries AD. Much of his story is based on folklore and literary invention, and as a result, his historical existence is debated and disputed.
In the game, King Arthur is represented by a Champion but with better stats. He is only available in the Scenario Editor. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health (since The Conquerors). Like other infantry units, King Arthur is affected by all upgrades that affect infantry as well as any other bonuses that affect them.
