Why would this be in doubt? Was King Arthur a British hero?

If you're asking this you must have a reason behind it, explain that and I'll give my answer, just so you know, I do have a tattoo of him, so I'm not bias at all.

I want to know what poster perception of him and his deeds? My opinion is he was never a national hero! He might've been a provincial hero?
I hope the tat you have of him is based on the GPO statute I like that statute,

I’m sure that if we look deep enough, he’ll have been involved in the slave trade.
