Malory is thought to have been a knight of Newbold Revel and Winwick (Warwickshire and Northamptonshire) who was imprisoned in 1450 for attempted murder. He sat for Parliament in 1456 and joined Warwick and the Lancastrians against the Tudors. It is suggested that his famous work, Le Morte d'Arthur, was written while he was in prison. Le Morte d'Arthur is the first known prose account of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table and was first printed by Willam Caxton in 1485.
