LEGEND OF MERLIN
MERLIN His name means FALCON. When he was born to the beautiful Lady of the Lake, the great druid Hafgan, from whom Merlin was to learn all his magic, announced the birth of "The Great Lord of Light". His grandfather taught him to be a great warrior and tireless defender of the Empire. He became Merlin the warrior-druid, loyal counselor to Uther, supreme ruler of Britain. On the death of Uther, without any legitimate heir, Merlin drove his sword Excalibur into a solid rock and gave his people a message: "You look for a sign. Who pulls this sword from the rock will be the true King of all England". Merlin then became tutor to Uther's bastard son Arthur, teaching him all the wiles of a good sovereign and keeping him hidden until the time came to unsheathe Excalibur from its rock and claim his title as King of England. Once peace and harmony ruled in Britain, Merlin withdrew to his own abode. "Now you can continue to rule without my advice, go on ruling fairly and the future will speak of you".
