His characterization varies from story to story, though he is surprisingly prolific; he appears in a number of early stories, such as Chrétien de Troyes' works, and he turns up in all the cyclical versions. He gains a number of nicknames, including 'The Impetuous' and 'le Desirous'.In Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "Merlin and Vivien", one of the Idylls of the King, he makes an appearance. The knight appears in the musical Camelot, and was played by Peter Bromilow in the film version. Sagramore was portrayed by William Bendix in the 1949 film version of 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court'. In Bernard Cornwell's 'The Winter King', Sagramor is a fierce Numidian veteran of the old Roman army, and follows Arthur to Britain after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.
