Merlin

The Magician

Lord Tennyson included me, Merlin, in his stories about King Arthur. In those legends, I rescued the infant King Arthur from waves that were threatening to drown him. I carried Arthur to shore and the safety of my cave which you can still visit today in England.

I wrote these words on the sword, Excalibur, "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone is the rightwise born king of all England." When Arthur withdrew this sword to use in a tournament, he became the rightful King of England. Merlin helped King Arthur obtain the magical sword Excalibur from The Lady of the Lake. With the help of Excalibur, King Arthur was able to defeat many foes.

Legend says that Merlin trasnported the stones of Stonehenge from Ireland to present day England.

Merlin became King Arthur's adviser, prophet, and magician.

Merlin was created by Geoffrey of Monmouth in the 12th century in his book titled, 'Prophecies of Merlin.'
