How Merlin Met His Death
Merlin met his end when the Lady of the Lake tricked him. She was the one who gave Arthur the Excalibur. Merlin was enchanted by the Lady of the Lake and when she asked Merlin to teach her magic he readily agreed. As he taught her, the bond between them grew. Love blinded Merlin and he did not see the spell the lady of the Lake was casting on him. Then the Lady finally sang him a song and Merlin fell under the spell and she cast him to the land of the fairy keeping. There he stands ready to help Arthur if he is in need or if someone pure of heart rescues him.
