Summary
"In this study, Fiona Tolhurst offers the first feminist analysis the Arthurian section of Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain and his Life of Merlin. It argues that Geoffrey's history presents the marriage of Queen Igerna and King Uther as founded upon both love and equality, Igerna and Uther's daughter Anna as a pivotal figure in British history, and Queen Ganhumara as King Arturus's partner in power. In addition, the Merlin poem introduces a Morgen who possesses powers that Merlin does not, and a Ganieda who replaces Merlin as the prophet of the Britons"--
