The Famous Historian was a modern-time character in Monty Python and the Holy Grail played by John Young. He was seen telling the tale of King Arthur for a TV show, until suddenly a knight on horseback rid past him and killed him by cutting his throat with his sword. His murder started the police investigation that led to the eventual arrest of King Arthur. In the credits of the movie, it is revealed that his name is Frank the Historian.
