Legend is another literary genre that bears a lot of resemblance to historical fiction and myth. Some literary scholars defined it as the narrative that borders between history and myth. This means that, to a large extent, there are ongoing discussions about the accuracy of the stories under this genre.
Despite these arguments about its accuracy, stories and contents under this genre are very important in the cultural development of a people. Many civilizations get their traditions and customs from the narratives in legends. For instance, a large part of British history is linked to the legend of King Arthur, who many scholars believed is a mythical figure.
