Ygraine was the most beautiful woman in Britain, the cultured daughter of a petty lord of some little western island. She came ashore one day and the late Duke of Cornwall fell instantly in love with her. They formed a strong bond of affection despite the difference in their ages. They had three daughters together.

In the year 491, King Uther Pendragon made war against Cornwall, breaking an alliance he had forged just two years previous. After Gorlois was killed at the Battle of Terrabil, Uther took Ygraine as his wife and made her queen.

Over the next four years, Ygraine suffered the kidnapping of her infant son at the hands of Merlin the Magician, and then the death of her husband and king. After the tragedy of St. Albans, Ygraine retired to Amesbury Abbey, putting her trust in God rather than a land of leaderless knights, and taking her young daughter Morgan with her.

Later in life, she was reunited with her son, now king, Arthur.

Most of Ygraine’s Glory has been gained through marriage.

Died of illness at the age of 67.

Glory: 6,800
