Merlin, Morgan le Fay and the Apprentice

Have you ever heard of Merlin or King Arthur? I’m sure you have. I doubt you’ve heard about Morgan Le Fay. And definitely you haven’t heard about Merlin’s Apprentice. So here is short who’s who in Arthurian legends and Runes of Avalon.

Merlin is best known as the mighty wizard featured in Arthurian legend. His traditional biography has him born the son of an incubus and a mortal woman who inherits his powers from his strange birth. He grows up to be a sage and engineers the birth of Arthur through magic. Later Merlin serves as the king’s advisor until he is bewitched and imprisoned by the Lady of the Lake.

In Arthurian legend, Morgan le Fay, alternatively known as Morgaine, Morgain, Morgana and a slew of related name variants, is a powerful sorceress and sometime antagonist of King Arthur and Guinevere. King Arthur is her half brother by Igraine and Uther Pendragon. Morgan has at least two older sisters, Elaine and Morgause, the latter of which is the mother of Gawain and the traitor Mordred. In Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur and elsewhere, she is married, unhappily, to King Urien of Gore and Ywain is her son. Though she becomes an adversary of the Round Table when Guinevere discovers her adultery with one of her husband’s knights, she eventually reconciles with her brother, and even serves as one of the four enchantresses who carry the king to Avalon after his final battle at Camlann.

All that is what you can read on the internet. But is it the whole story? Is it true story?

It’s not…! I haven’t written a word about Merlin’s Apprentice, but I will, hold on. Story will be continued. In the meantime don’t forget to check out Runes of Avalon game trailer.
