In ancient Camelot King Arthur brought together the noblest and most powerful knights and lords. These knights came together to protect their home and go on glorious adventures.
The Knights of the Broken Table were created by Grant Morrison and Simone Bianchi. They made their first appearance in Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight #1. They are heavily based on the Knights of the Round Table from Arthurian lore.

Seven Soldiers of Victory
The Round Table is broken when King Arthur leads his soldiers Sheeda-side to recover the Cauldron of Rebirth and Plenty. King Arthur dies there, or during the Sheeda invasion. The seven surviving Knights are rallied by Lancelot to take a final, doomed charge against the Sheeda. Almost all members are killed in the fighting. One member, Sir Ystin falls through time before the battle concludes. Three members-- Bors, Peredur, and Galahad-- survive to bring an atom bomb against the corrupt rule of Mordredd the Dead. This explosion marks the final death of the Knights of the Broken Table.
