    no...
    (Original post by Wiki)
    Morgan had two older sisters, Elaine and Morgause; thus she is a member of a triplet, a familiar formula in Celtic myth. In Le Morte d'Arthur and elsewhere, she is married, unhappily, to King Urien of Gore and Ywain is her son.
    see?

    Ignoring the_bear's random comments...

    Can I join? I can i be the Lady of Shallott/Elain of Astolot (ANOTHER Elaine lol)? With my name being Charlotte, it will amuse my friends, who call me Shallott anyway
    Of course, and I shall put you down on our list.

    I have a topic. Discuss the following statement: "The Arthurian Legends are French Romances which have no connection to English History at all.They were adopted by victorians who found that they were some of the few 'proper' and 'chivalrous' examples of Medeival English stories"

    Its an idea I had. Until Sir Thomas Malory started to create Le Morte D'Arthur, most Arthurian Legends were scattered French romances carried around by troubadors and minstrels. Victorians found their ideas of Chivalry well suited to their ideas of propriety, and hence the European obsession with the Middle Ages.
