Watch now (1 min) | After King Uther Pendragon’s death, there was no known heir, and no king to rule all of England. Until Merlin engineered the reveal of his bastard son Arthur, through the drawing of the sword in the stone. Arthur’s crowning led to a rebellion by eleven minor kings, which Arthur soundly defeated. He married Guinevere, and established the Order of the Round Table. With Merlin’s foresight and influence, Arthur was gifted the fae weapon Excalibur, and conquered a vast empire.
