Did Merlin have great knowledge of dragons?


Published in Daily Trivia

Sort of -- Merlin saved his own neck by determining the root of Vortigern's troubles, showing him that a red and white dragon were battling beneath the foundation of his castle. He predicted that the red dragon would be the victor and only then the fighting would stop. Of course, this wasn't a literal analysis, as the red dragon represented Wales and the white dragon embodied the Saxon invaders. Merlin used his knowledge of politics to gain Vortigern's favor and was entrusted to the king as his advisor.
