Other Characters in Arthurian Legend
Igraine
Igraine comes from the Welsh name Eigyr. She was the mother of Arthur and the daughter of Amlawdd. She married Gorlois, by whom she had a number of daughters. (This husband is sometimes called Hoel.) Uther Pendragon had a relationship with her while he was under a spell which made him resemble her husband. That night Igraine conceived Arthur.



Later, after the battle when Gorlois was dead, Uther married Igraine. She never did see Arthur after he was first born, however, as he was given by Merlin to Sir Ector to raise as his son.

There was another Igraine in the Vulgate Merlin who was the sister of Arthur.
