Merlin is my most favorite medieval character, who is the wizard that implanted the sword Excalibur in the stone, which was only to be removed by the true King of England. Arthur’s father, King Uther, had a one-night affair with the Duke of Cornwall’s wife. She was not aware of this deception because Merlin magically camouflaged Uther to look like the Duke. When Arthur was born, Uther decided that he desired him for himself, but Merlin would not permit this and placed the baby to be raised by Sir Ector.

Upon the death of Uther, Merlin took his sword and mystically embedded it into a rock, and the true King could only remove the sword. Arthur’s brother Kay was contending in an event, and he needed his sword. He called upon Arthur to fetch his sword for him, and Arthur could not find the sword, so he went to the town square where he had seen Excalibur, and he pulled it from the stone. There are many twists and turns to this story; however, Merlin was with Arthur for his lifetime.
