Merlin was apparently only half human; the son of a woman and a demon!
Merlin was an advisor takings such as Uther and Arthur, Merlin became Arthur’s guardian and teacher when Arthur was young.
I think that Merlin is a popular legendary figure because he had many magical powers and could apparently change form. Also, he helped many kings in Britain fight against their enemies from abroad. He is also the person responsible for looking after the legendary King Arthur and organizing the famous competition using the sword Excalibur.
One very famous legendary figure is that of Robin Hood. Robin is famous for his gallantry, robbing the rich to feed the poor and fighting against injustice and tyranny in Britain.
The stories of Robin portray him as a fearless outlaw leading his band of merry men against the tyranny of Prince John. The Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy of Gisbourne. A brill ion f archer. Robin lived a life of adventure-poaching the King’s deer from the outlaws’ retreat in
Sherwood Forest.
Stories about the adventures of Robin haw been told and retold for over six hundred years. It is thought that Robin Hood may have even been a real character!
