Merlin was a great Wizard who lived at the end of the 5th century and the beginning of the 6th century. He was a magician, a prophet and an advisor, active in all phases of the administration of King Arthur’s kingdom. Some accounts of his name say that he was given the name Emrys (or Ambrosius) at his birth in Caer-Fyrddin (Carmarthen). Yet other accounts of his name say that it was Myrddin Wyllt (Merlinus Caledonensis), which is far more likely to be true. He later became known as Merlin, a Latinised version of the Welsh word, Myrddin, taken from the place of his birth. Merlin was the illegitimate son of a monastic Royal Princess of Dyfed. His mother’s father, however, King Meurig ap Maredydd ap Rhain, is not found in the traditional pedigrees of this kingdom and was probably a sub-King of the region bordering on Ceredigion.

Merlin, however, was in actual fact, a later incarnation of Vishnu, Khrishna and Christ. He was born human, and at a later time during his life an added Light from Christ came to be with him, giving him the understanding and the powers that he had. His enemies wanted to hide the truth of who he was and send people the other way, so they created these lies and myths in order that people would misunderstand him. Continue reading
