Hail my lords and ladies!
Welcome to the land of Camelot, where great tales abound, and where I, as a bard or storyteller, will attempt to document the worthy adventures of the enchantress, Morgan Le Fay.
This series of short stories are of mine creation, although there have been many others who have delved into the Arthurian times, and have returned, victorious, with their own tales. (And methinks, so should you!)
I have come to regard my tales of Morgan Le Fay as something like a short version of the Chronicles of Narnia, where the main story is The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and the rest of the stories either lead up to or are caused by this main plot.
The point is, my series of short stories, bundled together in an imaginary book called “The Eventful Life of Morgan Le Fay”, does have a main tale, and it will be the first I am posting. The rest of the tales will either come before or after the main story, and I will indicate which is so.
After saying all that I’ve said above (bleah, what a mouthful!), I would only be flattering myself if I were to say that mine tales are as superior as C.S Lewis’, for what am I, but a miserable bard, meandering around Camelot, and living on a meagre supply of pottage?
Now, to the point of this post (blast, I’m verbose!)
You might want to understand the convoluted line of nobles and royals in Camelot, before embarking on the tale I have laid before you. (and to save you the job of googling)
It all started with Uther Pendragon and Lady Igraine. They had a son, who became King, and we all know his name: King Arthur Pendragon.
And then, Lady Igraine actually had a first husband, and his name was Gorlois of Tintagel, Duke of Cornwall. They had three daughters, Elain, Morgause (an evil enchantress) and Morgan Le Fay (a good enchantress). (Ah hah, there she is!)
So, there, Morgan Le Fay and King Arthur are half- siblings.
I think that will be all for now, in case I bore you to tears (or have I already?)
Any other mysteries or issues that I have not addressed will be solved in the near future, and we can discuss it along the way.
So. Put on thy armour and ready thy swords and shields, my lords and ladies!
Let us face the adventures of Morgan Le Fay!
