Exiled as a boy from his native land of Thule, Prince Valiant grew up in the vast fens of fifth century Britain before discovering his calling and destiny as a knight of King Arthur’s storied Round Table. As inquisitive and intelligent as he is handy with a sword, Val rights wrongs and adventures across both the known and unknown medieval world. Along the way, he finds and marries the love of his life, Aleta, Queen of the Misty Isles, and fathers a family of equally adventuresome offspring. All of whom test his patience and bruise his ego to one degree or other such are families in any era.

Created in 1937 by the immortal Hal Foster, Prince Valiant continues strong to this day as the pinnacle of comic strip adventure storytelling. Balanced between the excitement and danger of medieval knightly derring-do and the domestic complexities surrounding a high-spirited family, Val has little time for rest and his devoted readership would have it no other way.

As representatives of Camelot, Val, Aleta and the roguish ladies’ man, Sir Gawain, have seen adventures taking them throughout barbarian-plagued Europe; from the wilderness of Pictland to crumbling Rome and prospering Byzantium; from far Cathay to the unnamed Americas; from Ab’Saba in limitless Africa to Jerusalem and the sands of the Holy Land.  prince04

Equally adept with both his brains and brawn, Prince Valiant carries forth the ideals of Camelot as beacons of light and civilization in an often dark and violent age. As such, he remains an instantly identifiable and much beloved hero for generation after generation.

Prince Valiant began in full-color tabloid sections on Saturday February 13, 1937. The first full page was strip #16, which appeared in the Sunday New Orleans Times Picayune. The internal dating changed from Saturday to Sunday with strip #66 (May 15, 1938). The full-page strip continued until 1971 when strip #1788 was not offered in full-page format—it was the last strip Foster drew. The strip continues today by other artists in a half page format.
