2. The fun fact mentioned is that some people believe he was a Roman-British solider who fought against the Saxons. Also the first Roman calendar had only 10 months in it and started in March. Later it was changed, so that the year started on January first and had 12 months.

Although I did not find the exact date as to which the Romans left Britain it was said that they had left over 1,500 years ago.

The fun fact mentioned was that some people had believed (and still do) that King Arthur was actually a Roman-British general who had fought against the Saxons.

* The Romans had to fight the Saxons, the got a letter saying they were coming, the Romans didn't stand a chance, so the Romans left in about A.D. 410

* Some people believe that King Arthur(of the knights of the round table) was a Roman-British General who fought the Saxons. Also, The calendar we use dates from Roman times. The old Roman calendar had 10 months(not 12) Julius Ceaser organized a new calendar in 45 B.C. He made a new year start in January, not March
