So how many people are there in Camelot, anyway? Or the entirety of Albion? And how big an army would they be able to raise? Obviously canon doesn't provide a definite answer, but we can make a best guess using real world data.

The City of Camelot

In 1066, the largest city in Britain was London, thriving with 10,000 people. Let's compare this to Rome, one of the largest cities in Europe.

Population comparison over time:

London Rome
50AD Rural 1.6 million
200AD 60,000 1.4 million
1000AD 10,000 30,000
2013AD 8 million (3rd largest in Europe) 3.5 million (8th largest in Europe)

Given what we see of Camelot in the pilot, and accounting for the massive anachronisms, I would put the show at around 1000AD. I would not say that Camelot is as large as London. It's a large city, yes, but it's suffered a lot of losses, and it's inland, away from the trade routes. It would be much closer in size to Winchester, which had a population at the time of 6,000. So a rough estimate would put the city of Camelot at 5-6,000. Ealdor, as an extremely rural village in a mountainous area, would only have a population of 100. That's including the elderly and the very young. An able, adult population of about 40-60 matches what we saw in "The Moment of Truth."

The Kingdom of Camelot and Albion

Data for 1000AD is rather sparse, so the best guide is population density. Medieval France has the highest population density of ME Europe, with over 100 people/sq mile. Germany at the time was 90 p/sqm, and the entire British Isles was at 40 p/sqm. Much of this is because the BIs have comparatively less arable farmland and a fair amount of rocky terrain. The size of Great Britain, our Albion analogue, is 89,000 sq mi. At 40 p/sqm, that gives us a population size of 3.5 million.

For my map of Albion, I used the following counties of England and Wales to make up the kingdom of Camelot:

Clwyd 2,910 sq mi
Shropshire 1,347 sq mi
Staffordshire 1,048 sq mi
West Midlands 348 sq mi
Warwickshire 763 sq mi
Worcestershire 672 sq mi
Herefordshire 842 sq mi
Oxfordshire 1,006 sq mi
Gloucestershire 1,216 sq mi
TOTAL 10,152 sq mi

10,152 sq mi with a population density of 40 brings the total population of the kingdom of Camelot to around 400,000. However, the terrain of Camelot would be mostly good farmland, and that would increase the supportable population. So we can bring that up. The north of Camelot is less arable than the south, especially the northern plains and there are three significant mountain ranges, so I wouldn't bring it all the way up to France or Germany. But let's say a population density of 60 for Camelot, bringing the total population to around 600,000. That would be roughly 17% of the entire population of the British Isles (4m).

Military Numbers

Let's start with a modern country. North Korea, the most heavily militarized modern country in terms of soldiers per capita, has an active military of 45 per 1000 people, or 4.5% of the total population. The next largest is South Ossetia, with 3.5%, and then Singapore with 1.6%. So the numbers drop off steeply. The US has a fairly small army of .04% of the population, but we make up for that with a large base population. The US army is 1.4 million, while the North Korean army is 1.1 million.

Now back to the height of the Roman Empire. A Roman legion was 5,400 soldiers. During the time of the Roman invasion (50AD), across the entire Roman empire there were about 30 legions, or 162,000 men. That would be 0.36% of a 45 million population of citizens, or 4% of the 4 million citizen population (most of the population were not full citizens). So we see that in a heavily militarized state, 4% is a good outside number for the size of the active army. Keep in mind that there would have to be a large support network for all of this: servants, smiths, carpenters, farmers, all the people who actually keep things running. Most states would not have such a large active military.

At full population and strength, Camelot could then support an army of 24,000. That's huge and incredibly costly. So let's bring that number down to something more reasonable. Most countries today have armies of less than 1% of the population, but Camelot has been actively at war for decades. That will both increase the size of the army and lessen it, since they would have lost a lot of population as a result of so much fighting. So Camelot might not be at 600,000 anymore, but 500,000, and they might be able to raise a full-strength army of 2%. That would provide a maximum of 10,000 soldiers. The vast majority of these would be common folk, not trained soldiers like knights. This would include border patrols, domestic military, etc. .5% to 1% would be more likely when Camelot was not actively at war: 2,500 to 5,000 soldiers.

I used 500 for Arthur's army in Bird of the Gauntlet since it was time-constrained, but if they'd waited a few weeks they would have been able to muster a strength of 1,000. If city of Camelot's population is 6,000, then sending off 500 soldiers and 500 support would mean losing 1/6 of their entire population for however long the Battle of Gedref would take. That would be somewhat ameliorated by people coming in from the surrounding towns and the knights recalled from patrols, but as you can see, it was as large as Arthur could feasibly manage.

These numbers are also important when considering the way that Rome conquered Britain/Albion. The initial period of invasion brought four legions to Britain, and three were generally stationed there until the 4th century. A fighting force of over 20,000 well-armed, well-trained men would have been overwhelming.

Chapter Text

There were two main forms of transportation available over land for the time period of the Merlin series (not counting magical transportation, etc): on foot or by horse. The following covers how fast each transportation method typically was over various types of terrain and other factors. This is followed by an breakdown of the distances and routes that may be applicable to the series.

All travel speeds/times assume a fit and healthy young adult. Bad weather, injuries, sickness, and age (among other factors) could all result in slower progress and longer travel times.

(ref: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=19730 )

Travel On Foot

Human walking pace averages about 2.5 - 3 miles per hour. Assuming that travelers are walking for around 7-8 hours a day, with breaks for rest and food/water, the following distances would be covered:

On Roads / Trails
Level or rolling terrain: 20 miles
Hilly terrain: 14 miles
Mountainous terrain: 9 miles

Off-Road (or unkempt trails etc)
Level/rolling grasslands: 15 miles
Hilly grasslands: 12 miles
Level/rolling forest/thick scrub: 8 miles
Very hilly forest/thick scrub: 6 miles
Un-blazed Mountain passes: 6 miles
Marshland: 5 miles

Extreme Examples

  • The world record for the marathon distance of just over 26 miles is a mere 2 hours and 8 minutes.
  • Ulysses Grant thought a forced march of 20 miles in a day was generally not a good idea if troops were expected to fight at the end of it.
  • The British SAS selection ‘Test Week’ concludes with ‘Endurance’, a 40 mile march across the Brecon Beacons (very hilly / mountainous terrain, famed for its bad weather) - completed in less than 20 hours whilst loaded in excess of fifty five pounds of equipment, plus water, food, and rifle.

 Notes

  • Naismith's rule is a ‘rule of thumb’ for planning a hiking expedition by calculating how long it will take to walk the route, including ascents. The basic rule is:
    “Allow 1 hour for every 3 miles forward, plus 1 hour for every 2000 feet of ascent”.
  • If there is hostile territory at the end of the trip, keep in mind that the harder the travel, the less able the traveler will be to fight at the end of it.
  • Reduce these distances by around a quarter if heavily laden.
  • Add a quarter to half again for very experienced hikers.
  • Exceptionally experienced and/or physically capable travelers might be able to do significantly more as a one off forced march, but twice the base is probably a reasonable maximum and I would expect them to take be walking for up to 20 hours and be utterly exhausted at the end of it!

§

 

Travel On Horse
 
Horse walking pace averages about 4 miles per hour. Assuming that travelers are riding for around 10 hours a day, with breaks for rest and food/water, the following distances would be covered:
 
On Roads / Trails

  • Level or rolling terrain: 40
  • Hilly terrain: 30
  • Mountainous terrain: 20

 
Off-Road (or unkempt trails etc)

  • Level/rolling grasslands: 30
  • Hilly grasslands: 25
  • Level/rolling forest/thick scrub: 20
  • Very hilly forest/thick scrub: 15
  • Un-blazed Mountain passes: 10
  • Marshland: 10


Extreme Example

  • The Tevis cup is a 100-mile-in-one-day competition which goes over some quite rugged and mountainous trail terrain in the western states of USA. They do it on very special Arab horses with little or no baggage and even then the winning times are usually around 17 hours.


Notes

  • Halve these distances for a horse pulling a cart or for a very heavily laden horse (e.g. a fully armored knight who insists on wearing his armor all day rather than having it stowed on a second baggage horse as would be normal).
  • Add half again for specially trained horses and riders who are prepared to push hard — though do bear in mind that horses cannot be pushed like this for more than a few days at a time. You can add a bit more again to this distance if the breed of horse is exceptionally suitable for this sort of thing, but I’d say 2 to 2.5 times the base is the absolute maximum without some sort of magical assistance!
  • Poor weather such as heavy rain or wind should reduce distances by about one quarter, and very poor conditions like heavy snow or gale force winds, etc. should reduce distances by at least half if not more.


§

Armies
 
The above number only apply to individuals or small groups. When dealing with armies, the numbers go down quickly. For typical armies of the day, it is reasonable to assume speeds of 5 to 10 miles per day or even less. The slow speed is a result of the fact that an army as a whole can only go as fast as its slowest part, which includes the sick and injured as well as carts full of supplies hauled by men or pack animals. Terrain must also be factored in (see above).
 
A highly organized and trained army like the Romans could achieve a march of 15-18 miles per day, or up to 20 miles per day when pushed. But the latter would be exhausting even for them. (Keep in mind that they would be carrying armor, weapons, supplies, etc.) Fully mounted armies could achieve 30 miles per day.
 
This explains why scouting parties were so useful. One or a few people could walk or ride much more swiftly ahead of the army; if the army moved at 5 miles/day and the scouts were on horseback, they could cover up to 8 times the distance.

Distances
 
Albion, as an analogue of Great Britain, has an area of 80,823 sq mi (209,331 km2). Its longest distances are 600 miles (965 kilometers) from north to south and 300 miles (485 kilometers) from east to west (the tip of Cornwall to the tip of Kent). The furthest distance between two points is Land's End in Cornwall to John o' Groats in Dalriada (aka northern Scotland). Off-road, the route is about 1,200 miles (1,900 km). This would result in the following travel times:
 
East-West

  • By horse (avg 40 miles/day): 6.5 days
  • On foot (avg 20 miles/day): 15 days

 
North-South

  • By horse (avg 40 miles/day): 15 days
  • On foot (avg 20 miles/day): 30 days

 
Land’s End to to John o' Groats

  • By horse (avg 40 miles/day): 30 days
  • On foot (avg 20 miles/day): 60 days

Camelot
 
As mentioned in the previous chapter, I’ve measured Camelot at 10,152 sq mi. It is approximately 85 miles at its widest point east to west and 100 miles north to south. The longest distance (based on modern roads) is 169.5 mi from the southeast corner to the northwest corner.
 
In terms of terrain, most of the kingdom is level or gently rolling. The area around the castle is heavily forested and hilly; the south is mostly farmland. There are three mountainous areas (the White Mountains, the Mountains of Asgard, the Ridge of Ascetir). North of the Darkling Woods, the terrain flattens out (The Northern Plains).
 
The distance between Camelot and Gedref is about 55 miles. I assumed that the army would be able to travel about 10 miles per day for a week, with extra time built in to get through the pass through the White Mountains.
 
I will add more points and travel data once I have finished the detailed map of Camelot.

Elmet "The Perilous Lands"

Castle Icon The Dark Tower - a menacing place that haunts the Dreams of men and instills fear to those who even think about it. It is accessible through a forest known as the Impenetrable Forest. It was said by Queen Mab that the tower only exists in one's mind. It is surrounded by barren plains. Location is not specified but the wasteland is very similar to the one seen in The Perilous Lands. (The Dark Tower)

Escetir

Cave Icon Balinor’s Cave - The cave where the dragonlord Balinor lived. To reach the cave, travel through the Forest of Merendra to the foot of Feorre Mountain. At the back of the cave is an exit which led to the Tomb of Ashkanar (The Last Dragonlord, Aithusa).
Village or Dwelling Icon Ealdor- An outlying village in the Ridge of Essetir. The home town of Merlin and his mother, Hunith. (The Dragon's Call, The Moment of Truth, The Sword in the Stone, Official BBC Map of Camelot)

Castle Icon Tomb of Ashkanar - Mausoleum where the last Dragon Egg was located. (Aithusa)

Gwynned

Castle Icon Alator's Dwelling - An island with a small castle. Location unknown but based on visuals and other factors it may be the Albion equivalent of Holy Island, Anglesey in Wales. It is called "Holy" because of the high concentration of standing stones, burial chambers and other religious sites on the small island. This would fit Alator's role as a High Priest. (The Secret Sharer)
Castle Icon Castle of Fyrien - A castle built on the edge of the Great Seas of Meredor, near the border between Camelot and Gwynned. An outpost for trade routes to the east until trade dried up and the castle was abandoned. (The Castle of Fyrien)

Valley or Plain Othanden - The place where Sir Pellinore, a Knight of Camelot, was wounded badly in battle. Location unknown but given that only a few episodes prior was the peace treaty with Mercia, it's safe to place this somewhere on the border between Camelot and Mercia and assume the battle was among the last of the war between the two kingdoms. (Excalibur)
