Is King Lear a true story?
There are numerous sources for Lear. The foremost critical is the mysterious The Genuine Chronicle Historic of Ruler Leir and his three girls (Leir), which was delivered in 1605.
In spite of the fact that we do not have any prior Celtic or English sources for Ruler Lear, it’s sensible to accept that the same wrangle about almost historicity that applies to Ruler Arthur applies to Lear since it’s likely that Monmouth utilized sources which we do not have, instead of making up the story from scratch.
On the off chance that we acknowledge the goodwill of Monmouth, that he recorded a gotten ‘history’ we at that point have the address of whether Lear was a genuine authentic figure whose presence was passed down through the eras by implies such as verbal storytelling or whether he was a figure in Celtic mythology who was changed over time into an amazing Lord.
