"The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table" is a 1975 progressive rock concept album by Rick Wakeman of Yes fame. The album tells the legend of King Arthur.

The tour in support of the album was a theatrical performance on ice, an expensive project which, despite being sold out, caused Wakeman to go bankrupt.
