Merlin is a legendary figure best known as the wizard featured in Arthurian legend. King Arthur benefits from the help and advice of this powerful wizard throughout his life. When King Arthur was a young boy, the powerful wizard Merlin prepared him to become Britain's ruler. As a boy, King Arthur pulled Merlin's magical sword Excalibur from a stone and proved that he was the rightful heir to the throne. Merlin raised Arthur away from the Royal Court for his own safety until he was ready to take the throne.
In later years, Merlin became King Arthur's trusted adviser and helper. Indeed, Merlin, who arranged for Arthur's birth and for many aspects of his life, can be seen as the guiding force behind the Arthurian legends.
