Six years after her life had ended, Morgain, King Arthur's half-sister, was subjected to unremitting calumny by the 'recorders of Arthurian History', beginning with Geoffregy of Monmouth and Sir Thomas Malory. For them and subsequent writers, Morgain was the thorn in Arthur's career, invariably described as sorceress, a troublemaker, envious and evil: in short, as a woman of less than one dimension. Geoffrey and Malory wrote to entertain noblemen and the high clergy, who appreciated the implicit approval and encouragement of their status as men.
