Has anyone ever considered the stories of King Arthur (of the round table fame) to be a take-off of the Akenaten/Oedipus stories? I recently watched a movie by John Boorman named Excalibur. The parallels between Arthur and Modred and our friend Akenaten and his son Tutenkhamun jumped right out at me! What if Igraine/Morgana were not mother /daughter but just mother? A Queen Tiye, for example. I know I am reaching (more than) just a bit but I thought it kind of interesting at the time - still do.
