Contrary to popular belief, which held that the cup of the King of Kings would naturally be a fabulous golden cup encrusted with jewels and inlaid with silver, it actually took on the misguiding appearance of a simple, worn, and very battered clay cup. It was also used to catch Christ's blood at his crucifixion, after the Spear of Longinus pierced his side.
The cup was then entrusted to Joseph of Arimathea. It was said that the Grail could give to whomever drank from it eternal life. Joseph of Arimathea reached Great Britain in 37 AD  with the Grail and housed it at the site that would become Glastonbury Abbey but the relic went missing some time after.

When Arthur was mortally wounded by his nephew Mordred , he was taken to Glastonbury Tor by Bedivere. After the king's passing, Bedivere returned the Grail to where Joseph of Arimathea had left it and founded a hermitage.
However, as the Grail passed through Arthur's kingdom, strange events following in its wake. The monastery was sacked by Vikings in the ninth century and the Holy Grail got as far east as Kiev before trade or raid carried it south. In the year , an Aramaic-speaking Semite secret society used a pre-existing Greco- Roman facade to construct a temple in a hidden gorge to house the Grail. The group eventually established itself as the Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword. The Grail was found in the Canyon of the Crescent Moon after the First Crusade by a company of knights from France , three brothers who pledged to protect it.

Sir Richard 's shield carried a second marker but the man died on the journey back and he was buried with his shield in a tomb in Venice , Italy. The third brother returned home and in the 13th century told his story to a Franciscan friar ,  who recorded about the whereabouts of the holy relic somewhere "in a canyon deep in a range of mountains" and made a painting about it which was kept in a castle's chapel at Klasenheim , Austria-Hungary.
