This chapter aims to establish the nativeness of Le Morte D'arthur, first by considering Malory's use of native romance sources, and then by looking at how continental sources were influenced by his memory of native romance. Two concerns in particular arise, both connecting Malory to the native tradition while also anticipating his relevance to Spenser: one is Malory's concern with stories of noble youths who are displaced or disguise their identity, and the other is Malory's problematized attempt to fuse history and romance into an idealized version of England.
