The figure of Merlin goes back 800 years, when he was first mentioned by a cleric from Wales in the 12th century. This legendary wizard was born from the composition of various folkloric figures. The name of Merlin, for instance, was originally Merlinus Ambrosius, which comes from the combined name of two earlier tales of Myrddin and Ambrosius.
Merlin is today best known for his role in the legend of King Arthur. His magical powers were equal to none, with legends telling of his ability to predict the future and shift shape. Early accounts of King Arthur claim that Merlin engineered the birth of Arthur through magical processes.
