What's Past is Prologue

There was no golden age. Arthur never ruled over a blissfully united Albion. Did he fail?

As the long years passed, Merlin witnessed his beloved lord portrayed in legends, folk-tales, books, plays, - even in moving pictures. The stories' content varied, but they had certain elements in common: expectations of better times ahead, faith in the good king who would one day return to help set things right.

That, Merlin discovered, was Arthur's legacy. Not fading memories of a glorious, distant past, but belief in a bright and happy future; hopes and dreams bringing every heart joy. No, Arthur didn't fail.
