Good question. When I hear news stories about John F. Kennedy and his family, they are often referred to as “Camelot.” But “Camelot” is taken from Arthurian legend. King Arthur’s legendary palace is named “Camelot” and was placed in Southwest England. Camelot is where King Arthur held court and had his “Round Table” that all the Knights sat around.
I believe President Kennedy’s wife, Jackie Kennedy, was the one who began using Camelot in relation to the Kennedy’s and those around them.
