Wow there is definitely a lot I didn't know about Merlin! I'll need to read up on it some more...
I love this idea and Sarah's idea of Merlin possibly creating the first muggle-born witch out of Morgan. Maybe he did this to spite Arthur and show him that his new ways weren't right?Originally Posted by Carole
But then again, this conflict suggests to me that Merlin wouldn't have liked muggles, and then main accomplishment of Merlin is that he protected muggles and tried to make Wizards see that they should work together.
I think this makes the most sense. I wonder if Arthur was on board with Merlin? Would Arthur have promoted this idea of wizard/muggle relationship? Or did his growing faith put an end to their relationship, thus causing him to cut off his head?But I have thought a good deal about Merlin, and I kind of thought of his treatment of Muggles as an extension of the code of chivalry
I'm sort of leaning towards mixing the different legands together, as you can tell from above. I've only ever read Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, which deals a lot about chivalry, and I love the idea so staying with that seems natural for me.
