First appearing in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Vita Merlini, which followed the seminal Historia Regum Britanniae or The History of the Kings of Britain, Morgan le Fay is a central character within Arthurian legend.
Morgan le Fay’s relationship with King Arthur is as mutable as her characterisation, which ranges from a benevolent healer to an antagonistic enchantress. In certain retellings of the legend, she helps bear the wounded Arthur to the mystical isle of Avalon, where she treats his injuries. From the Victorian era through to American literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, she is commonly cast as a villainous character, who often seeks to harm Arthur and anyone associated with the legendary king.
