Morte
d’Arthur

From On All Hallows’ Eve, by Grace Chetwin:

“Please continue your account of Morgan le Fay.”

“People think of her as bad. They say that she tried to murder her brother, King Arthur of the Round Table…. But she did good things too. She gave Arthur his sword, Excalibur, and, well, when he lay dying, she and two other queens took him onto their barge and bore him from the world to heal his wounds and make him whole again. It was ‘… a dusky barge, Dark as a funeral scarf from stem to stern,’ and the three queens wore ‘crowns of gold’….”

Greylen smiled. “Very good. You like this Morgan le Fay very much, it is clear.”….

“I know more than that,” Meg went on quickly. “She is also called Nimue and Vivian, but those names are wrong, too.  Her true name goes right back to the Mabinogion — that’s a really old collection of Welsh bardic tales.  Her real name is Rhiannon….”

In honor of Grace Chetwin, this site’s music is now a theme more suitable for All Hallows’ Eve.

  1. Ah … Rhiannon
    Stevie Nicks knew what she was saying.  Although I think it more appropriate to say that this tune is suitable for Samhain.
