Arthur Pendragon is owned by Arthurian Legends; this version of Arthur Pendragon is used by me - HarryPotterRules1 - in my Fanfiction story: Curse of an Imp. I own nothing.

Arthur Pendragon, also known as King Arthur, is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the first episode of the first season. He is portrayed by guest cast member Max Theiriot, and is the Enchanted Forest counterpart of William Theroux.

Arthur is based on a character of the same name from Arthurian Legends.


Overthrown by his brother, Alexander-Eduard, Arthur is thrown into the dungeons of Camelot. He is rescued by Morgan, who has over powered the guards and left a horse in the main courtyard for him.

Thanking her by kissing her cheek, he rushes off into the courtyard, leaving her to summon a ball of flames in her hand. Climbing onto the horse, Arthur rushes away with his brother ordering the guards to stop him.

With Morgan's help, he is able to get under the gate before it closes and disappears into the forest.

Sometime after this, he wishes to make a deal with Rumplestiltskin.(The Thing You Love Most)

Later, Arthur sits two places to Prince Charming's right on the war council when they discuss The Evil Queen's plan to unleash the Dark Curse and how to fight it. He notes that he has sent his men into the forest and they have reported to him that the animals are abuzz with The Evil Queen's plan. He also asks Morgan le Fay what the High Priestesses make of the Curse; she doesn't answer.

When the Dark Curse hits, King Arthur is engulfed, while attempting to defend the injured Prince Charming, and transported to Storybrooke. (Pilot)

For events occurring during the curse, see William Theroux.
