The Story of King Arthur and His Knights is a 1903 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. The book consists of a large series of episodes in the legend of the mythological king of Britain King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. It was followed by The Story of the Champions of the Round Table, The Story of Sir Launcelot and His Companions, and The Story of the Grail and the Passing of King Arthur.

King Arthur was the son of Uther Pendragon and according to many legends defeated the barbarians in dozens of battles. Subsequently, he conquered a wide empire and eventually went to war with the Romans. He returned home on learning that his nephew Mordred had raised the standard of rebellion and taken Guinevere, the Queen.

Draws from medieval and contemporary sources to provide information on 281 of King Arthur's knights as well as seventy kings and feudal lords who cooperated with him.
