The Excalibur (), or Caliburn, is the mythical King Arthur saber, sometimes with magic power or associated with the legitimate supremacy of Great Britain. Excalibur and the stone blade (the evidence of Arthur's ancestry) are sometimes referred to as the same gun, but in most releases they are regarded as distinct.
The name Excalibur was associated with Arthur' s myth very early on. Excalibur is derived from the Welsh Kaledfwwlch (and the Breton Kaledvoulc'h, Middle Grain Calesvol), which is a combination of "hard" and "fracture, fissure". Caledfwlch appeared in several early Welsh works, among them the poetry Preiddeu Annwfn (although it is not directly mentioned here, but only hinted at) and the Prosa Culhwch and Olwen, a work that is connected with the Mabinogion and was perhaps composed around 1100.
Chrétien de Troyes' Old French Perceval from the end of the twelfth centuary bears the Escalibor and says, "for on his girdle was hanging Escalibor, the most delicate saber that existed, cut by metal as if by wood" ("Qu'il avoit fainte Escalibor, la meeillor espe que qui felt, qu'ele french ffer felt come").
Probably this was taken up by the writer of Estoire Merlin, or Vulgate Merlin, where the writer (who loved imaginative popular etymologies) claims that Escalibor is "a hebrew name, which in French means "cuts metal, wood and steel" ("c'est non Ebrieu qi distal en franchois trennenche he & acher et fust");
Please notice that the term "steel" here, ahier, also means "blade" or "sword" and comes from the mediaeval Roman aciary, a derivation of aces "sharp", so that in this atymology there is no immediate correlation with chalypha. From this imaginative egymological consideration Thomas Malory gained the idea that Excalibur means "cut steel" ("the name of it," said the woman, "is Excalibur, that is, as one can say, like carved stele").
A series of declarations are given in Artus Romanticism for Arthur's possessions of Excalibur. The first story to refer to the subject "sword in stone", Robert de Boron's Merlin, gave Arthur the English crown by drawing a saber from an anvil that sat on a rock that came to a cemetery on Christmas Eve.
12 ][Note 1] In this report, the act could only be carried out by "the real king", i.e. the divine designated sovereign or real successor of Uther Pendragon. Malory's writes: "He who draws this blade out of this rock and ambos is rightly borne as kings. "It is considered by many as the excalibur, and its identification is made clear in the later prose Merlin, part of the Lancelot-Grail series.
14 ] The difficulty of pulling a blade from a rock also comes up in the Artus legend of Galahad, the fulfilment of which indicates that it is meant to find the Holy Grail. Although not called Caledfwlch, Arthur's saber is descriptively described in The Dream of Rhonabwy, one of the stories associated with the Mabinogion:
Then, hearing Cadwr Earl of Cornwall called, they saw him ascend with Arthur's blade in his hands, with a pattern of two chimaera on the gold handle; when the blade was removed from the mouth of the two chimaera, it was like two fires of fire, so terrible that it was difficult for anyone to see.
Geoffrey's Historia is the first non Catfish spring to talk of the use of the saber. When Geoffrey said that the saber was made in Avalon, he Latinized the name "Caledfwlch" as Caliburnus. As his powerful pseudo-story reached continental Europe, authors changed the name further until it eventually took on the famous Excalibur shape (various spelling in the mediaeval Artus romanticism and chronicles traditions belong to it:
It was extended in the Vulgate series, also known as the Lancelot-Grail series, and in the post-Vulgate series that followed it. They both contained the work known as Prose Merlin, but the post-Vulgate writers omitted the Merlin sequel from the previous series by deciding to include an article about Arthur's early period with a new source for Excalibur.
Excalibur is used in several early works by Gawain, Arthur's cousin and one of his best chevaliers, such as Chrétien de Troyes' Perceval, the Grail story and the Vulgate Lancelot Proper section. Contrary to later releases, in which Excalibur is owned exclusively by the Emperor. Excalibur's vagina should have its own strength.
The Welsh legend says that the Dyrnwyn ("White-Hilt"), one of the thirteen treasures of the island of Great Britain, is a mighty blade of Rhydderch Hael, one of the three generous men of Great Britain named in the Welsh Triads. He never hesitated to give the gun to anyone, hence his pseudonym Hael "the Generous", but once the receivers heard of its special qualities, they always refused the saber.
Claíomh Solais in particular, an expression for "sword of light" or "shining sword", is used in a series of traditional oral folktales. The tale of the stone blade has an analog in some of Sigurd' s stories, whose sire, Sigmund, pulls the grief blade out of the Barnstokkr forest, where it is nestled by the Nordic Lord Odin.
Jeopardy up ^ This release also appeared in the 1938 edition of T. H. White's novel The Saber in the Stone by the English writer and the Disney adaption, both quoting the line by Thomas Malory from the G15. The poets Alfred, Lord Tennyson, described the saber in his poetry "Morte d'Arthur", which was later transcribed as "The Passing of Arthur", one of the king's idylls:
"There, he painted the Excalibur mark, / And o'er him, sketching the wintersoon, / Lightening the long clouds' tunics, / Running on / And sparkling sharply before freezing against the handle / For the whole handle, which sparkles with sparkling diamonds, / Myriad of Jerusalem artefacts and Jacinton work / Of the finest decor.
