Camelotia was a genus of sauropodomorph dinosaur that lived in England during the Late Triassic. However the rear limb is also similar to early sauropods, something which has seen the Camelotia genus tentatively assigned to the Melanorosauridae (type genus Melanorosaurus). The name Camelotia was derived from the name Camelot, the castle that was said to be the home of the legendary King Arthur.
