What proof do you have that King Arthur was even a guy? It's just commonly accepted ever since Thomas Malory wrote Morte D'Arthur, and TH White (who was homosexual) followed up on it with Once and Future King.

For all we know, King Arthur was Queen Arthur. Or Girl Pretending To Be A Boy King Arthur.

It's just another interpretation, and frankly, I think it's quite cute. "King" Arthur instead being a 5'1" girl that kicks ass with a sword more than half as large as herself? Well, I think that's just cool.

Saber has short hair when it's all bunned up...and she's [relatively] flat. I think she could have easily passed for a guy.

I had to pick between Taiga and Ilya, but I picked Ilya, because she is just so cute!
Taiga reminds me of Excel from Excel Saga, and Ilya reminds me of Colette from the game Tales of Symphonia.
Say yes to comic relief!

The bath scenes reveal her as decently endowed.

In armor Saber could pass for an effeminate guy. Of course, she still wears a dress while armored, but her subjects still referred to her as "he".

What that generally explains is that her subjects recognized her as a capable leader, but chose not to recognize her as a woman. I think that adds to the tragic feel of her desire to redo the Selection of the King.

Saber supresses her emotions, and realizes that even though she wants to be accepted as a woman, her subjects will not accept her as such. That's why I like her relationship with Shirou. He recognizes her abilities as a combatant (begrudgingly), but also recognizes her as a woman. That's why she ends up falling for him.

according to the legend: The one that gave arthur his fatal blow was his son, raised by the mother and kept away from him. if arthur was a female, she would've given birth to her son herself.. >_<.
Arthur also actually had a wife, who cheated on him with lancelot though...

Weither arthur really existed is a question itself.. more likely the english made these stories up because the french had their own history and heroes and the english didn't.

But yea.. a girl kicking ass with a sword is more attractive...


who was archer? robin hood?

Type-Moon's Mordred has a slightly different story. Unlike his 'father,' though, Mordred was fully male.

Archer is not a historical figure, I can tell you that much.

Saber gender discussion? OK.
Not that the legendary Arthur was female. But, conceivably he could have been female.
The King Arthur legend has many elements of Sarmatian myth. Sarmatians were armored heavy cavalry auxiliaries that the Roman Empire used to defend its borders, Roman Britain amongst them.
Watch the 2004 King Arthur movie to understand. Not historically accurate, but you get the general idea.
Sarmatians also had a tradition of equality between sexes in military, when the need called for it. Women fought too. There is a documented Sarmatian queen who defeated the armies of Persian kings. She's not Arthur, mind you, but it shows Sarmatians had warrior queens.

Archer- I've liked him since he first appeared. Mmhmm. He's a badass. He's hot. He's got teh skills. He's basically awesome <_<. He's manly, and he's got the "protective" thing for Rin :P.

Saber- You'd have to be insane to dislike her. I mean, comon. She's the best main character I've seen in any anime. She's awesome. She can own just about anyone.

Assassin- Just something about his..aura, should I say? I love the way he speak too. And his outfit's not too bad either.

Rin- I love her determination, and how she handles things. She's like a parent to the people around her, and she knows how to make decisions and not let them be biased by her own feelings. Example- When she let Archer handle things with Berserker while they ran away. She knew that Archer was going to die. There's no way that Archer could've won against that monster. However, Archer was the only one who could buy time for them. Rin isn't all that strong. Shirou wouldn't stand a chance, and I highly doubt Saber, who can barely walk in her condition, would be able to withstand even one blow from Berserker. They would all die if Archer didn't stay and fight though.

Rider- She's different from the other servants. She's not so harsh, and she's rather gentle. And what else? Her movies are damn sexy.

Gilgamelsh- I love that bad ass attidude of his. Most of the time, I find arrogance in characters annoying. But his kind of arrogance was..dominating. Also, those last lines of his as he touched Saber's face was just so..memorable.

I would've chosen Ilya if only she didn't kill my beloved Archer. x[

O.K. You just made that up.

You're off by almost 900 years. The earliest surviving account of Arthur that I know of was written in the late 6th Century. Many of the more romantic myths surrounding Arthur were concocted in the 12th Century Vulgate and Post-Vulgate cycles. Mallory's Le Morte d'Arthur was published in 1485.

No one can prove anything about Arthur, as most of the accounts of his life, including the earliest, are fictional. The switch from male to female, I suspect, was entirely a Type Moon innovation.
