"History is written by the victor". A true, well known saying thrown into our daily vocabulary. But male victories tower alarmingly over the women's, who are often believed to be too careful and 'flowery' to partake in politics. They are blamed for becoming stronger under their rule - "perhaps it was an undiagnosed character flaw, but more likely it was Matilda becoming .... a king".
The "She-Wolves of England" portrays the true stories of these incredible women - sharing their stories beyond the marriages and offspring that associated them with power, and often royalty.
An interesting watch that keeps the watcher asking question after question, seeking answers and finding them through a mixture of dramatic re-enactments and the thrilling st…Read more >
After watching all chapters of the series and reading all reviews, in my opinion I do think Merlin and Arthur both fulfilled their destinies.
The producers did an amazing job showing their destinies and producing a good closure of all 5 seasons.
Here is how I understood the ending and the destinies of both Merlin and Arthur.
Throughout the whole series since the beginning, we heard of the wonderful unified lands of Albion and that magic will finally be allowed and respected. What we didn't realize, it actually has all been done and fulfilled.
Since the start of the series we started to imagine a world of King Arthur with Merlin besides him not hiding his magic and the use of magic in the good way throughout the unified kingdom.
The fact Arthur …

Hi guys, I am new here, and I thought this would be a nice place for people to analyze and review their feelings on their OTPS and ships on this show. Like how do you feel about Arwen, (Arthur and Gwen) Merthur (Merlin and Arthur) Perwaine (Percival and Gwaine) Mergana (Merlin and Morgana) Mreya (Merlin and Freya) Gwencelot (Gwen and Lancelot) Morgwen (Morgana and Gwen) Morgwaine (Morgana and Gwaine) ArMor (Arthur and Morgana) Gaius and Alice, Uther and Ygraine, Uther and Vivienne, Vivienne and Gorlois, Morgred (Morgues and Cenred) etc. There is a lot to discuss show lets get started. I am ok with all ships, and I expect the same level of decorum to be adhered to by everyone here. If you have an unpopular ship I would love to hear about it…Read more >
My fellow wiki users, I believe that Morgana loved Merlin for most of the series, I have no shame admitting I am a Mergana shipper, but I have evidence, and to be honest I believe the writes squandered a great romance possibility
Series 1 I believe that Morgana loved and probably still loved Merlin for most of the entire series, and this started around episode 8. Previously she probably just fancied him as a friend from afar, jealous that Gwen had someone so willing to fight for her as Merlin did in 01x03. “She is a lucky woman.” and telling Arthur that she couldn't imagine any person loving her so much. She was grateful that someone cared as much about her only friend as much as she did. It’s obvious she knew the power she possessed with …Read more >

Can't believe it has been 7 years since the best show in the universe first premiered!
It has been an honour becoming part of this fandom and I have so many good memories both from the show and fun times on Merlin Wiki.
Kilgharrah said it best when he said that 'the story we have been a part of will live long in the minds of men!'
I am asking in this blog to become an admin here. I have a pretty good handle on how to use admin abilities on wikis, I have quite a sharp eidetic memory on everything Merlin (so, if you have any questions about it, I'm your guy), and I love the show.
So yeah, I would very much appreciate your thoughts on what you all think of me being an admin.Read more >
Hi! I'm currently writing a Merlin fanfic and I'm having a difficult time finding insults/slang that Merlin and Arthur can call each other. I have just a handful that are used the most throughout the show, but it would be super helpful if anyone could provide me with more.
p.s. this is also my first time using this site, so sorry if I mucked anything up in this post somehow...Read more >
I was thinking what fugures in Arthurian lore would have made intriguing characters in the show and I came up with the following ideas:
Sir Dinadan - the most carefree, the most rational and merry knight. He has very practical views concerning courtly love and is universally loved in Camelot.
Sir Dagonet - Arthur's fool. He is a comedic character who is made a knight as a jest, The intriguing thing about Dagonet is that he accepts what he is and doesn't try to be something different.
The Green knight/Bertilak - one of the most cerebral and mysterious characters. You can watch the short animated film "Sir Gawain and the Green knight" on Youtube. The poem is very difficult to read.Read more >

The user Machairodus suggested that "The Last Dragonlord" takes place inside the main character's head. So I thought that the episode should be re-shot for this to work, using characteristics of german expressionist cinema. Expressionism is defined by the protagonist's perception overwritting the objective reality in the sense that everything is distorted from the point of view of the troubled male and anxious hero. One of the earliest films that defined the current was "The cabinet of doctor Caligari" in which the main story is actually the fantasy of a madman. One of the last and greatest expressionist movies is "Shadows: a night hallucination" which is self-explanatory. In "The cabinet" the buildings are unnaturaly distorted. And the …Read more >
"Dark is my heart. The greatest of all secrets.". These words were spoken by Deathshead from Wolfenstein: The New Order. He is a nazi mad scientist and as far as villains go, you can't get more campy and ridiculous. Yet, Deathshead is one of the more nueanced nazi antagonists in recent years which is odd, considering Morgana, who had the makings of a wholesome three-dimensional character and became a typical baddie.
Dark is her heart and the greatest secret is how she fell from grace. We had a mastervul beginning with season 2 and yet with season 3, we had a cunning, egotistical, murderous witch, who had almost nothing in common with the corageous, rebellious and compassionate gal before. We deserved an explanation. The time jump here, more…Read more >
I was thinking of the best one-off villains in the show. My list won't include Alvarr because I think he was meant for one more appearance at least. Absent will be also Ruadan becuse he appeared in two epsidoes.
4. Myror - he was a skillful and cold character. Just as an assassin should be. He had this cool/swagg aura. He could be charming, when he needed to be and was inventive and smart. A great foil for Merlin as far as non-magical adversaries go.
3.The Witchfinder - he had a plethora of wicked qualities - ruthless, egotistical, deceptive and arrogant. He had a striking. if anahcronistic look to him and was very good at his job, which was, surprisingly, finding witches and warlocks.
2. The Gleeman - another very skilled assassin who tried …Read more >

I've always been curious to know how old are the members of "The Quartet" (id est Merlin, Arthur, Morgana and Gwen). I read many posts and comments on the wiki, but I want to show you my calculation.
From the oldest to the youngest:
Morgana should be the oldest of the four, because Katie McGrath confirmed in an interview that Morgana is the oldest of "The Quartet". I assumed she is little less than 2 years younger than him. She should be 22-23 in Series 1 and 30 when she dies!
Gwen is younger than Morgana and I think she is slightly older than Arthur, I think she is 21-22 in Series 1. So she is 29 when she is crowned queen of Camelot.
Arthur should be younger than Morgana. His actual age is easy to calculate, because the Great Purge ended 20 ye…Read more >

To all who might be reading this, hello. My name, age and location hold no importance in any of your lives, so I shall not list them here.

So,I literally just got connected to this about..eh five minutes ago.
This place literally looks like a ghost town but that's probably due to the fact that everyone knows that the whole thing over although my brain tries to convince me otherwise. BUT I still see MANY new fanfictions being made everyday and updated.
On the site Fanfiction.net if you haven't heard of it I suggest you go and read some stuff on there.Most of them are pretty decent.
Anyway why should this go blank if that isn't. Is it because there is nothing new to say?
I think there are multiple things to think about and probably share. Also makes me sad when I see that Merlin has been dying on YouTube. Excuse me guys if anyone reads this and gets offended. But really if I had th…Read more >

I was so happy to see the magic of Merlin was still alive after all this time, when I finally discovered a 2014 article on the series:
The idea of a Merlin revival made my pulse jump, I was overjoyed, UNTIL the article got updated today on the 30th June and its been ruled the news is probably false, and with that what little hope I had left for a satisfying ending to Merlin has been eroded to further despair.
I'll miss this show so much...Read more >

So if only the cast had said Yes to a Series 6... I remember this wiki was once buzzing with activity, after all it did reach over 1000 articles which is very impressive, yet with the conclusion of Series 5 the fandom seems to have gone with it.
What is the future of Merlin Wiki if the series has been over for 2 years, a sixth series will never happen and I wouldn't hold my breath for a spin-off at this stage either.
Merlin is essentially over... I'm sad about this of course, as I loved this show...the finale was heartbreaking...yet the most memorable episode in the series.
We know Arthur does come back eventually, just off-screen and we'll never see it or know much about its context.
What I'm trying to say is, this wiki is slowing down...to …Read more >
Since the show ended I've been popping in and out of the wiki, so I just wanted to announce that I will be permanently leaving Merlin Wiki. This post will be my 24669th and final edit.
It's been a nice 3 years since I joined, I hope there is a spin-off so this site can come back to the life as 2012 illustrated. This is a really awesome site, while its glory days may be over it still remains a good resource for all information and discussions regarding Merlin.
While I have many regrets about how the show ended, I have no regrets regarding any of my contribution to Merlin Wiki.

She is probably the best choice for this title although she wasn`t that powerful. We all know that the Triple Goddess is made up of the Maiden Huntress, the Mother Goddess and the Death Crone.
To me, Morgana fits every single personality for obvious reasons.
She has the same reasons for being the Triple Goddess as her sister, I can`t choose between
What do you think...could have been one of them the famous mysterious Triple Goddess, the most powerful sorceress in the Old Religion? I have always wondered this!Read more >
So, in a fight who’d win: Morgana or Merlin? Clearly, Merlin wins at the end of the series, but he just stabbed her with a dragon’s sword and avoided magic altogether. But in all seriousness, which is the more powerful wizard? The canon doesn’t really help answer the question. Sometimes it’s Morgana, and sometimes it’s Merlin. But the overall award for consistency in power definitely goes to Merlin.
Let’s start with Morgana. She’s a High Priestess of the Old Religion, who supposedly can’t be killed by a mortal blade. However, throughout the seasons, she gets hurt in some of the most mundane ways and looks death in the face. First, in the episode The Crystal Cave, she almost dies from a head injury until Merlin saves her. It doesn’t make much …Read more >
Don't take this seriously, it's just me trying to find far-fetched and silly reasons that would explain why things were as they were on "Merlin".
It can slightly be related to the What if-questions we have been discussing on the forum, although these here have a different meaning ;-)
Alright, I need to get some things explained and I'd like some valid reasons regarding some storylines and characters, starting with characters that behaved strangely and without a proper background-story. So Agravaine, for example.
Question: why and in what way did he love Morgana so much and why did he hate Uther and Arthur?
Answer: he was Gorlois!
Yes, Gorlois, Uther's former best friend. But not Gorlois as he used to be but maybe a ghost in disguise, maybe even …

As I'm sure most of you, I too adore the story of the Druids of Albion -and in particular-, the Druid Boy, Mordred.
I am in the middle of making a Fanfic Crossover of Merlin and Harry Potter. But don't get me wrong, I am no fan of Harry Potter, but I find the fast-travel (aka when they appear in black balls of smoke) of the Death Eaters pretty good to mix in with Merlin.
But anyways, back on Topic; I am in need to find the scene of The Beggining of The End, where Mordred first arrives in Camelot with his Master. I need to use that particular scene to add on to my Crossover (not very much of Harry Potter will be used in the fan fic, as it is set in a completely different time).
I need to find the Beginning of The End Camelot scene i…Read more >
This time last year the wiki was full of speculation and theories as we waited somewhat impatiently for the new series.
Well we all know how series 5 turned out... and there no point trying to petition for a redo as I truly doubt that a year on they would even consider re-doing the series.
Anyway now a year on we have, Atlantis.
Personally I think Atlantis is quite a decent show. While it might not have had the same character depth and actors as Merlin and didn't quite take me into the world of Atlantis as much as The Dragons call took me into the world of Camelot and Albion it had a good storyline with a lot of potential particularly if the show becomes more darker. I enjoyed Mark Addy as Hercules, he was like a funnier version …Read more >

OK, folks, this might be stupid, overemotional and all, but I couldn't help it...
You might have thought the series had long ended, it is over and all, but here we go... Once again I turn on the TV and here is the lame, localized, cut to 4:3 version, but still --- this is MERLIN! Aagh, words can't describe this surge of feelings. :D
You know, I had some long abandoned plans for Merlin and this wiki which were left for some indefinitely distant future, but this just urged me to get in here. :)
By the way, I've been thinking... Perhaps one of reasons "Merlin" is forever in your heart is the soundtrack. Really, I think it's probably the best I've heard.
Thanks you, folks, for reading this... Maybe I'll bring something in the very near future, rig…
