The Origins of Uther Pendragon

The abandonment of the Province of Britannia by the Romans took place over a number of years leading to a final separation around the year 410 AD. It is in this year that a letter from the Emperor Honorius advised the last administrators that Britannia must ‘look to its own defence’. The Roman legions had withdrawn incrementally over a number of years leading up to the final separation to bolster the defense of Gaul as a troubled Western Empire fought with itself and attacking Germanic tribes.
