THE CONCEPTION OF MERLIN
Histoire de Merlin, France (Poitiers), 1450-1455.
BNF, Français 96, fol. 62v
In Geoffrey’s conception, Merlin is the son of a nun of royal birth, engendered by a demon; this half-human origin becomes over time the source of Merlin’s prophetic powers. In Robert de Boron’s old French verse Merlin, he “plays a redemptive role as mediator between earthy chivalry and the heavenly plan of salvation: he oversees the conception of Arthur, creates the symbolism of the Round Table, and prepares Perceval for the Grail quest” (William W. Kibler, The Arthurian Encyclopedia, Garland Press 1986).

Following this tweet (below), I started to think, which two celebrities would I match, and why? Why? Why not? Most of the real ones are fakes anyway.
“@rosalieallen: #DanielJohns and #Delta Goodrem need to get married and have a baby.”
It would be like #Rod Stewart and #Rachel Hunter all over again. Im sure Daniel would love that. Delta, want his number?
