A story handed down from the past based on past events is known as a legend. It may or may not be fictional in nature. It belongs to a particular culture and has been handed down from generation to generation. Many legends debate the existence of supernatural beings and forces such as ghosts, werewolves, or angels. The teller and audience may or may not believe a given legend, but the events in the tale are presented as if true.

It is a word derived from the Latin word "legenda" which means "things to be read". A legend is different from myth and tall tales. Legend is not disconnected with reality and doesn't speak of anything beyond the realm of reality. Legend is focused on individuals and their accomplishments. They are either so lifelike or so worthy that people hoped they were real. The stories of King Arthur are legends in this sense.
