King Arthur's 12th Battle - Badon Hill

Nennius reords that "The twelfth was the most severe contest, when Arthur penetrated to the Hill of Badon. In this engagement, 940 fell by his hand alone, no one but the Lord offering him assistance. In all these engagements the Britons were sucessful. For no strength can avail against the will of the Almighty"

The Battle of Badon Hill was King Arthur's greatest triumph over the Saxons. This almost total defeat of the Saxon invaders brought about an extended period of peace to Britain. Nennius, writing some two centuries later, does identify the British leader as Arthur, as do the Annales Cambriae (The Annals of Wales), written in the 900s.
