An Egyptian ship seen by Merlin off the Cornish coast, sailing through the air. “Provoked to an envious spleen” by its splendor, he blasted it out of the sky. An Egyptian princess washed ashore. The Lady of the Lake made Merlin carry her body to Arthur’s court, where she was resurrected by Galahad.
