Igraine of Tintagil’s Clerk

A wise man, learned in astronomy, he embellished the Rock of Canguin with the Wondrous Bed and other marvels.

Readers absolutely determined to find Merlin in Chrétien’s pages might conceivably identify him with this clerk. I think it would be a stretch, but certainly Merlin owed Igraine of Tintagil something for what he had put her through.
