Morgana

European - An enchantress. Sister of Alcina and Logestilla. She appeared at the baptism of Ogier and claimed him as her own, providing him with the sword, Cortana, when he was knighted by the emperor. She captured Rinaldo, Florismart and several other knights and kept them as prisoners in her castle until Roland captured her and forced her to free them. When Ogier grew old, she took him to Avalon and, in some versions, restored his youth and married him. Some say that they had a son, Marlyn. Another such son, Meurvin, may be the same as Marlyn. In these stories she has a brother named Oberon. In the Arthurian legends, she is Morgan le Fay, half-sister of King Arthur.
