 MORGAN LE FAY ALPHABET - Books

“Morgan Le Fay’s first appearence is in Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Vita Merlini where she is introduced as the most beautiful of nine sisters, a kind and magically talented being who can change her shape. After the battle of Camlann, Arthur voyages to Morgan’s residence on the Isle of Avalon to be healed of his wounds by her special arts. In Chrétien de Troyes and elsewhere, it is suggested that Morgaan is Arthur’s sister. (…) It is thus an ancient and withered Morgan who controls events in the 14th century English poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight ” - Thelma S. Fenster
