Story of Merlin

In the popular story of King Arthur and Merlin, Merlin took the young prince under his wing and, for safety reasons, had him raised with a simple family in a house somewhere in a forest. Merlin was Arthur's teacher and also his best student. Merlin taught Arthur a technique for pulling a stick out of a stone, a technique he would later unknowingly apply to the magical sword Excalibur. Arthur's father, before dying on the battlefield, had stuck the sword in a rock, predicting that whoever could pull the sword out would become king of all England.
