The Lady of the Lake is the name of several related characters who play parts in the Arthurian legend.
These characters' roles include giving King Arthur his sword Excalibur, enchanting Merlin, and raising
Lancelot after the death of his father. Different writers and copyists give her name variously as Nimue,
Viviane, Elaine, Niniane, Nivian, Nyneve, Evienne and other variations
Versions of the Lady (or Ladies) of the Lake appear in many other works of Arthurian fiction, including novels, films, television series, stage musicals, comics,
and games. Though her identity may change, her role as a significant figure in the lives of both Arthur and
Merlin remains consistent.

Meet the Author

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet (15 August 1771 - 21 September 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet, popular throughout much of the world during his time.
Scott was the first English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.
