Arʹthegal

.

Uterine brother of Prince Arthur. Spenser, in his Faërie Queene (book iii.), makes Britʹomart see his person and name in the magic glass. She falls in love with the looking-glass hero, and is told by Merlin that she will marry him, and become the mother of a line of kings that would supersede both the Saxons and Normans. He referred, of course, to the Tudors, who were descendants of Cadwallader. (See Artegal.)
